  • Description: As the types of user accessible data and information escalates, so does the variety of Information Retrieval (IR) practices which can match to achieve the challenges instigated. By expanding its applicability which can broaden the use, integrating technologies and methods and as long as the quest for the perfectly accurate system continues to exist it is quite possible and likely that Information Retrieval can become one of the key technology areas for current and future research and practice. This paper expounds the recent research advances in the area of Contextual Information Retrieval. It tracks and investigates the evolution of retrieval models from the pre-web (traditional) Information Retrieval paradigm and Web information retrieval to the most prominent interactive Web information retrieval field of contextual information retrieval focusing on developing models and strategies of contextual IR.
