An Investigation of Term Weighting Approaches for Microblog Retrieval [chapter]

Paul Ferguson, Neil O'Hare, James Lanagan, Owen Phelan, Kevin McCarthy
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The use of effective term frequency weighting and document length normalisation strategies have been shown over a number of decades to have a significant positive effect for document retrieval.  ...  In this paper we investigate their effect on microblog retrieval performance using the Tweets2011 collection from the TREC 2011 Microblog Track.  ...  To the best of our knowledge, no one has yet directly evaluated the applicability of such term weighting approaches to microblog retrieval.  ...

Monolingual and Cross-lingual Information Retrieval in Cultural Microblog at CLEF 2018

Chedi Bechikh Ali, Hatem Haddad
2018 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
For the french-english cross language task, we used a state of the art approach based on query transation.  ...  This task is challenging due to the short length of the query and of the documents. For the monolingual context we propose to expand the query using a probalistic weighting scheme.  ...  For Relevance feedback, an initial retrieval run is performed using the initial formulation of the query.  ...

Structured Event Retrieval over Microblog Archives

Donald Metzler, Congxing Cai, Eduard H. Hovy
2012 North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
The results of an exploratory study carried out over a large archive of Twitter messages demonstrates both the value of the microblog event retrieval task and the effectiveness of our proposed search methodologies  ...  Rather than retrieving individual microblog messages in response to an event query, we propose retrieving a ranked list of historical event summaries by distilling high quality event representations using  ...  Instead, given an event query, our system retrospectively analyzes the corpus of microblog messages for the purpose of retrieving structured event representations.  ...

TREC Microblog 2012 Track: Real-Time Ranking Algorithm for Microblog Ranking Systems

Davide Feltoni Gurini, Fabio Gasparetti
2012 Text Retrieval Conference  
In this particular, challenge each participant is required to conduct a "real-time" retrieval task, which given a query topic seeks for the most recent and relevant tweets.  ...  Our contribution is multifold: (1) adapting an existing ranking method BM25 to the microblogging purpose (2) enhancing traditional content-based features with knowledge extracted from Wikipedia, (3) employing  ...  THE RETRIEVAL SYSTEM Our approach is based on the idea that actual ranking algorithm based on tf-idf weighting schema and keyword matching can be a baseline for a microblog ranking system.  ...

University of Indonesia at TREC 2011 Microblog Task

Samuel Louvan, Mochamad Ibrahim, Mirna Adriani, Clara Vania, Bayu Distiawan, Metti Zakaria Wanagiri
2011 Text Retrieval Conference  
We apply query expansion from dataset with different weighting scheme. Furthermore, we do an initial experiment to incorporate timestamp of the tweet document in order to improve search performance.  ...  The tweet is considered relevant if it is current in terms of time. In this microblog track, we investigate various mechanisms to reformulate our query in order to retrieve more relevant documents.  ...  MICROBLOG TRACK Tasks The task of the Microblog Track is to retrieve relevant tweet documents for each query at a specific time.  ...

Predicting query performance in microblog retrieval

Jesus A. Rodriguez Perez, Joemon M. Jose
2014 Proceedings of the 37th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research & development in information retrieval - SIGIR '14  
QPP would be of great benefit in the context of microblog retrieval, as AQE was the most widely deployed technique for enhancing retrieval performance at TREC.  ...  In this work we study the performance of the state of the art predictors under microblog retrieval conditions as well as introducing our own predictors.  ...  In a similar context, Term Weight Variability (VAR) was proposed. This predictor measures the variability of weights for a term across the collection.  ...
