The LADS (Log Analysis for Digital Societies) task at CLEF aims at investigating user actions in a multilingual setting. We carried
out an analysis of search logs with the objectives of investigating how
users from different linguistic or cultural backgrounds behave in search,
and how the discovery of patterns in user actions could be used for community identification. The findings confirm that users from a different
background behave differently, and that there are identifiable patterns
in the user actions. The findings suggest that there is scope for further
investigation of how search logs can be exploited to personalise and improve cross-language search as well as improve the TEL search system.
