A Case Study: Index Page Synthesis

Is automatic change in view feasible in practice? As a first step, we investigate the automatic synthesis of new index pages. Index pages are central to site organization. If we are able to generate index pages that are valued and adopted by the human webmaster, we can begin to extend and elaborate the kind of organizational changes suggested. In this section, we define the index page synthesis problem and present an algorithm -- PageGather -- that solves part of this problem.
