We summarize findings from [3]. At the TREC Enterprise Track [2], the need to study and understand expertise retrieval has been recognized through the introduction of the expert finding task. The goal of expert finding is to identify a list of people who are knowledgeable about a given topic. An alternative task, building on the same underlying principle of computing people-topic associations, is expert profiling, where systems have to return a list of topics that a person is knowledgeable about [1].
