Proximity-aware scoring for XML retrieval

Andreas Broschart, Ralf Schenkel
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
Proximity-aware scoring functions lead to significant effectiveness improvements for text retrieval.  ...  For XML IR, we can sometimes enhance the retrieval quality by exploiting knowledge about the document structure combined with established text IR methods.  ...  experiment, we evaluated how good our proximity-aware scoring is at determining documents with relevant content.  ...

XML-aided phrase indexing for hypertext documents

Miro Lehtonen, Antoine Doucet
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
We combine techniques of XML Mining and Text Mining for the benefit of Information Retrieval.  ...  Consequently, the quality of the indexed phrases improves, which has a positive effect on the average precision measured by the INEX 2007 standards.  ...  XML-aware text mining has also been a quite neglected field of research, so far, despite its potential in indexing methods for XML Information Retrieval.  ...

Finding and ranking compact connected trees for effective keyword proximity search in XML documents

Jianhua Feng, Guoliang Li, Jianyong Wang, Lizhu Zhou
2010 Information Systems  
In this paper, we study the problem of keyword proximity search in XML documents.  ...  We take the disjunctive semantics among the keywords into consideration and find top-k relevant compact connected trees (CCTrees) as the answers of keyword proximity queries.  ...  Furthermore, various XML full-text query languages have been proposed [24, 25] , and a workshop INEX, 5 INitiative for the Evaluation of XML retrieval, aiming at evaluating XML retrieval effectiveness  ...

Term-Based Models for Entity Ranking [chapter]

Krisztian Balog
2018 Advanced Topics in Information Retrieval  
We will also introduce an extension to multiple document fields, as a mechanism for preserving some of the structure associated with entities.  ...  The task we are going to focus on is ad hoc entity retrieval: answering a one-off free text query, representing the user's underlying information need, with a ranked list of entities.  ...  While pseudo-counts suffice for bag-of-words retrieval models, for proximity-aware retrieval models, term position information needs to be preserved.  ...

Learning to rank results in relational keyword search

Joel Coffman, Alfred C. Weaver
2011 Proceedings of the 20th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '11  
An analysis of the factors appearing in existing scoring functions suggests that some factors previously deemed critical to search effectiveness are at best loosely correlated with relevance.  ...  Users require an effective method to retrieve information from these databases without learning complex query languages (viz. SQL).  ...  We thank Ding et al. and He et al. for sharing implementations of systems that we included in our evaluation.  ...
