Abstract

We propose and motivate a scheme for classifying queries submitted to a people search engine. We specify a number of features for automatically classifying people queries into the proposed classes and examine the eectiveness of these features. Our main nding is that classication is feasible and that using information from past searches, clickouts and news sources is important.
