[edit] Abstract

The online encyclopedia Wikipedia offers millions of articles which are organized in a hierarchical category structure, created and updated by users. In this paper we present a technique which leverages this rich and disordered graph to assign each article to one or more topics. We modify an existing approach, based on the shortest paths between categories, in order to account for the direction of the hierarchy.
