Information Retrieval (IR) process is complex because it involves a gap between the representation of an Information Need (IN) (i.e. the formulated query) and the actual IN. This gap can become widen when searchers are experiencing an ill-defined IN. As a result of this phenomenon, searchers were left unsatisfied with the results obtained in response to their initial retrieval formulation [1], and must engage in further interaction with the system to resolve their needs.
