Recently, users who search on the web are targeting to more complex tasks due to the explosive growth of web usage. To accom- plish a complex task, users may need to ob- tain information of various entities. For ex- ample, a user who wants to travel to Beijing, should book a flight, reserve a hotel room, and survey a Beijing map. A complex task thus needs to submit several queries in order to seeking each of entities. Understanding complex tasks can allow a search engine to suggest related entities and help users explic- itly assign their ongoing tasks.
