Optimization framework model for retrospective tweet summarization

Abdelhamid Chellal, Mohand Boughanem
2018 Proceedings of the 33rd Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '18  
However, timely following the development of long-running events is too difficult due to the velocity and the volume of the published information.  ...  Our experiments on TREC RTF 2015 and TREC RTS 2016 datasets have shown the effectiveness of our approach.  ...  To evaluate the proposed approach, we carried out several experiments on TREC Microblog Real-Time Filtering 2015 (MB-RTF) dataset [7] and TREC Real-Time summarization (RTS) 2016 track [8] .  ...

Explicit Diversification of Event Aspects for Temporal Summarization

Richard McCreadie, Rodrygo L. T. Santos, Craig Macdonald, Iadh Ounis
2018 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
Moreover, much of the information reported is redundant and/or out-of-date [18] . Hence, there is a need for automatic approaches that summarize that content for the user in real-time.  ...  Temporal summarization (TS) approaches are used to automatically produce concise overviews of such events, by extracting text snippets from related articles over time.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work is supported by the EC co-funded SUPER (FP7-606853) project.  ...

Evaluation in Contextual Information Retrieval

Lynda Tamine, Mariam Daoud
2018 ACM Computing Surveys  
While evaluation is central and has a long history in information retrieval, it faces the big challenge of designing an appropriate methodology that embeds the context into evaluation settings.  ...  Context such as the user's search history, demographics, devices, and surroundings, has become prevalent in various domains of information seeking and retrieval such as mobile search, task-based search  ...  The main task in TREC 2011 through TREC 2014 consists of a real-time ad hoc search task where context data includes the query time that represents the timestamp of the query in a human and machine readable  ...
