Abstract: We studied Chinese concept-based information retrieval technology in Web. The research is sponsored by China national 863 project. The key idea is to use a concept network to guide user's search and browse.

Important concepts are identified, and the relationship between these concepts is calculated to form a concept network which is used for intelligent query expansion.
