Evaluating Retrieval over Sessions

Ben Carterette, Paul Clough, Mark Hall, Evangelos Kanoulas, Mark Sanderson
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
This paper describes the TREC Session Track, which ran from 2010 through to 2014, which focussed on forming test collections that included various forms of implicit feedback.  ...  A key challenge in the study of this interaction is the creation of suitable evaluation resources to assess the effectiveness of IR systems over sessions.  ...  SIGIR SESSION TRACK OVERVIEW The aim of the track was to test if the retrieval effectiveness of a query could be improved by using previous queries, ranked results, and user interactions.  ...

Increasing Stability of Result Organization for Session Search [chapter]

Dongyi Guan, Hui Yang
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our evaluations on both TREC 2010 and 2011 Session tracks demonstrate that the proposed approaches outperform the state-of-the-art hierarchy construction algorithms in stability of search results organization  ...  For search sessions with multiple queries, this could be undesirable since it may leave users a seemly random overview and partly diminish the benefits that SRC intents to offer.  ...  Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this paper are of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect those of the sponsor.  ...
