Users of search systems are often reluctant to explicitly build profiles to indicate their search interests. Thus automatically building user profiles is an important research area for personalized search. One difficult component of doing this is accessing a knowledge system which provides broad coverage of user search interests. In this work, we describe a
method to build category id based user profiles from a user's
historical search data. Our approach makes significant use
of Wikipedia as an external knowledge resource.
