Interactivity at the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC)

William Hersh, Paul Over
2001 Information Processing & Management  
The goal of the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) is to provide a setting for large-scale testing of text retrieval technology (Voorhees & Harman, 2000) .  ...  All of them emanate to some degree from the instance recall task that was used as a common task by the Interactive Track from TREC-6 through TREC-8.  ...  These studies give us a glimpse into the complexity of interactive retrieval evaluation.  ...

John Wang, Cameron Coles, Rob Elliot, Sofia Andrianakou
2009 Text Retrieval Conference  
This exclusionary eDiscovery approach has been recommended by search and information retrieval technology providers in the past, in part, based on the state of technology available at the time; however  ...  The culling process does not necessarily take into account the composition of the data set; and may, in fact, impede the expediency and cost-effectiveness of the eDiscovery process as ESI not initially  ...  approached the TREC Interactive Task differently  ...

Relevance judgments between TREC and Non-TREC assessors

Azzah Al-Maskari, Mark Sanderson, Paul Clough
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
This paper investigates the agreement of relevance assessments between official TREC judgments and those generated from an interactive IR experiment.  ...  Several factors contributed to differences in the agreements: the number of retrieved relevant documents; the number of relevant documents judged; system effectiveness per topic and the ranking of relevant  ...  The Text REtrieval Conference 1 (TREC) has established an evaluation practice where a binary relevance scale is combined with liberal relevance criteria.  ...
