Web site adaptation: a model-based approach

Adaptation of web sites has been an area of great interest during the last years. In this context, development of techniques for knowledge discovery from web usage data have been developed. In this paper a methodological framework is proposed that exploits knowledge discovery from web usage data in support of a process for off-line adaptation of web sites. The proposed approach is based on a web site model consisting of a set of parameters. These parameters define a multidimensional space in which any web site can be located. The adaptation of the web site is based on combination of usage data and the web site model characteristics.
