The Internet and World Wide Web are becoming more and more dynamic in terms of their content and use. Information retrieval (IR) efforts aim to keep up with this dynamic environment by designing intelligent systems which can deliver Web content in real time to various wired or wireless devices. Evolutionary and adaptive systems (EASs) are emerging as typical examples of such systems. This paper contains one of the first attempts to gather and evaluate the nature of current research on Web-based IR using EAS and proposes future research directions in parallel to developments on the Web environments.
