Due to its open characteristic, the Web is being posted with vast amount of new information changes continuously. Consequently, at any time, it is conceivable that there will be hot issues (emerging topics) being discussed in any information area on the Web. However, it is not practical for the user to browse the Web manually all the time for the changes. Thus, we need this Emerging Topic Tracking System (ETTS) as an information agent, to detect the changes in the information area of our interest and generate a summary of changes back to us regularly. This summary of changes will be telling the latest most discussed issues and thus revealing the emerging topics in the particular information area. With this system, we will be 'all time aware' of the latest trends of the WWW information space.
