    • CoDet: Sentence-based containment detection in news corpora 

      Varol, Emre; Can, Fazlı; Aykanat, Cevdet; Kaya, Oğuz (ACM, 2011)
      We study a generalized version of the near-duplicate detection problem which concerns whether a document is a subset of another document. In text-based applications, document containment can be observed in exact-duplicates, ...
    • Compressed multi-framed signature files: an index structure for fast information retrieval 

      Koçberber, Seyit; Can, Fazlı (ACM, 1999-02-03)
      A new indexing method, called Compressed Multi-Framed Signature File (C-MFSF), that uses a partial query evaluation strategy with compressed signature bit slices is presented. In C-MFSF, a signature file is divided into ...
    • A content-based social network study of evliyâ çelebi's seyahatnâme-bitlis section 

      Karbeyaz, Ceyhun; Can, Ethem F; Can, Fazlı; Kalpaklı, Mehmet (Springer, London, 2012)
      Evliyâ Çelebi, an Ottoman writer, scholar and world traveler, visited most of the territories and also some of the neighboring countries of the Ottoman Empire in the seventeenth century. He took notes about his trips and ...
    • Cover coefficient-based multi-document summarization 

      Ercan, Gönenç; Can, Fazlı (Springer, 2009-04)
      In this paper we present a generic, language independent multi-document summarization system forming extracts using the cover coefficient concept. Cover Coefficient-based Summarizer (CCS) uses similarity between sentences ...
    • Determining translation invariant characteristics of James Joyce’s Dubliners 

      Patton, J. M.; Can, Fazlı (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2012)
      We provide a comparative stylometric analysis of the Dubliners stories of James Joyce by using its original and Murat Belge’s Turkish translation. We divide the stories into four categories as suggested by Belge and ...
    • Developing a text categorization template for Turkish news portals 

      Toraman, Çağrı; Can, Fazlı; Koçberber, Seyit (IEEE, 2011)
      In news portals, text category information is needed for news presentation. However, for many news stories the category information is unavailable, incorrectly assigned or too generic. This makes the text categorization a ...
    • Diversity and novelty in information retrieval 

      Santos, R. L. T.; Castells, P.; Altıngövde, I. S.; Can, Fazlı (ACM, 2013-07-08)
      This tutorial aims to provide a unifying account of current research on diversity and novelty in different IR domains, namely, in the context of search engines, recommender sys- tems, and data streams.
    • Diversity and novelty in web search, recommender systems and data streams 

      Santos, R. L. T.; Castells, P.; Altingovde, I. S.; Can, Fazlı (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-02)
      This tutorial aims to provide a unifying account of current research on diversity and novelty in the domains of web search, recommender systems, and data stream processing.
    • Efficient processing of category-restricted queries for web directories 

      Altıngövde, İsmail Şengör; Can, Fazlı; Ulusoy, Özgür (Springer, 2008-03-04)
      We show that a cluster-skipping inverted index (CS-IIS) is a practical and efficient file structure to support category-restricted queries for searching Web directories. The query processing strategy with CS-IIS improves ...
    • Ensemble pruning for text categorization based on data partitioning 

      Toraman, Çağrı; Can, Fazlı (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2011)
      Ensemble methods can improve the effectiveness in text categorization. Due to computation cost of ensemble approaches there is a need for pruning ensembles. In this work we study ensemble pruning based on data partitioning. ...
