A Novel Preprocessing Technique for Session Construction Using Propositional DAGs
This paper continues the line of research on Web access log analysis. Web access log analysis is to analyze the patterns of web site usage and the features of users' behavior. It is the fact that the normal Log data is very noisy and unclear and it is vital to preprocess the log data for efficient web usage mining process. Preprocessing is the process comprises of three phases which includes data cleaning, user identification and session construction. Session construction is very vital and numerous real world problems can be modeled as traversals on graph and mining from these traversals would provide the requirement for preprocessing phase. On the other hand, the traversals on unweighted graph have been taken into consideration in existing works.
