Federated Search of Text-Based Digital Libraries in Hierarchical Peer-to-Peer Networks [chapter]

Jie Lu, Jamie Callan
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper addresses the problems of resource representation, resource ranking and selection, and result merging for federated search of text-based digital libraries in hierarchical peer-to-peer networks  ...  Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed approaches are both more accurate and more efficient than more common alternatives for text-based federated search in peer-to-peer networks.  ...  Any opinions, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are the authors', and do not necessarily reflect those of the sponsor.  ...

Semantic and distributed entity search in the web of data

2012 SIGIR Forum  
our approaches in a language model setting. • Our extensions are successfully evaluated with respect to their applicability in different distributed environments such as federated search and P2P. • We  ...  We further show how these approaches can be applied in the distributed context, both with low (federated search) and high numbers (Peerto-peer or P2P) of independent repositories, collections, or nodes  ...  Acknowledgements The WoD is an extension of the WWW and as such inherently distributed.  ...

Combining concepts and language models for information access

Edgar Meij
2011 SIGIR Forum  
This, in turn, allows us to account for the language associated with concepts within the retrieval model in a principled and transparent manner.  ...  The main contribution is a set of models and methods that enable users to retrieve and access information on a conceptual level.  ...  Figure 7 . 3 : 73 Per-topic breakdown of the improvement of WP-SVM over the QL baseline on the TREC Web test collection using ad hoc measures.  ...

Towards a belief-revision-based adaptive and context-sensitive information retrieval system

Raymond Y. K. Lau, Peter D. Bruza, Dawei Song
2008 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
The extra bonus of a belief-based IR model is that its retrieval behavior is more predictable and explanatory.  ...  To our best knowledge, this is the first successful implementation and evaluation of a logic-based adaptive IR model which can efficiently process large IR collections.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The work reported in this paper has been funded in part by the Co-operative Research Centre for Enterprise Distributed Systems Technology (DSTC) through the Australian Federal Government's  ...

Web text retrieval with a P2P query-driven index

Gleb Skobeltsyn, Toan Luu, Ivana Podnar Zarko, Martin Rajman, Karl Aberer
2007 Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '07  
In this paper, we present a query-driven indexing/retrieval strategy for efficient full text retrieval from large document collections distributed within a structured P2P network.  ...  More precisely, our theoretical analysis and experimental results indicate that, at the price of a marginal loss in retrieval quality for rare queries, the generated index size and network traffic remain  ...  Acknowledgement: The work presented in this paper was (partly) carried out in the framework of the EPFL Center for Global Computing and supported by the Swiss National Funding Agency FER as part of the  ...

Information search and retrieval in microblogs

Miles Efron
2011 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Because the problem of microblog search is so new, the article concludes with a discussion of particularly pressing research issues yet to be studied in the field.  ...  Modern information retrieval (IR) has come to terms with numerous new media in efforts to help people find information in increasingly diverse settings.  ...  It is less clear that the work of building a microblog test collection would yield the enduring value that we have seen with the TREC collections.  ...

Full-text federated search in peer-to-peer networks

Peer-to-Peer Information Retrieval

Almer S. Tigelaar, Djoerd Hiemstra, Dolf Trieschnigg
2012 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
Most existing research and systems today use a combination of these, with the distributed global index and aggregated local indices being the most popular.  ...  We showed various optimisations that can be applied in peer-to-peer information retrieval networks to reduce bandwidth usage and latency and to improve the quality and quantity of the search results returned  ...  The authors used the ad-hoc TREC collections of TREC 6 and 7 for evaluation, a network with 560,000 documents divided over 1,500 peers.  ...

News vertical search using user-generated content

Richard McCreadie
2012 SIGIR Forum  
The Microblog track at TREC was proposed in 2011 to investigate real-time ad hoc search, however, research in the field is still in its infancy.  ...  Information retrieval (IR) tasks like ad hoc Web search typically use standard datasets for evaluation, such as those used in IR evaluation workshops and forums like TREC (see Section 2.4.3).  ...  In Section C.3, we describe our retrieval features, while in Section C.4 we describe our burstiness features.  ...

Introduction to information retrieval

2009 ChoiceReviews  
The scheme discussed in this chapter, currently believed to be the best published scheme (achieving as few as 3 bits per link for encoding), is described in a series of papers by Boldi and Vigna (2004b  ...  In the future, the convention for addresses (collectively known as the internet address space) is likely to use a new standard known as IPv6 (http://www.ipv6.org/).  ...  Voorhees (1998) is the standard article for examining variation in relevance judgements and their effects on retrieval system scores and ranking for the TREC Ad Hoc task.  ...
