Overview of the TREC 2007 Legal Track

Stephen Tomlinson, Douglas W. Oard, Jason R. Baron, Paul Thompson
2007 Text Retrieval Conference  
TREC 2007 was the second year of the Legal Track, which focuses on evaluation of search technology for discovery of electronically stored information in litigation and regulatory settings.  ...  The track included three tasks: Ad Hoc (i.e., single-pass automatic) search, Relevance Feedback (two-pass search in a controlled setting with some relevant and nonrelevant documents manually marked after  ...  with complaint drafting, topic formulation, and participating in Boolean negotiations; and to Richard Braman, Executive Director of The Sedona Conference R , for his continued support of the TREC Legal  ...

Rutgers' HARD and Web Interactive Track Experiments at TREC 2003

Nicholas J. Belkin, Diane Kelly, Hyuk-Jin Lee, Yuelin Li, Gheorghe Muresan, Muh-Chyun (Morris) Tang, Xiaojun Yuan, Xiao-Min Zhang
2003 Text Retrieval Conference  
H4: If there are texts which the information searcher has identified as relevant to the topic, using them as the basis for automatic query expansion will improve retrieval performance.  ...  This was operationalized by choosing terms for query expansion from the relevant texts, based on a combined ranking formula.  ...  Acknowledgements Many thanks to Colleen Cool for her work on the HARD study, to Michael Coviello for his contributions to the interactive experiment, and to our volunteer subjects.  ...

Cell tracking with TRACE3D—a new algorithm

Jan Handwerker
2002 Atmospheric research  
In comparing the results of the tracking algorithm with those from four test persons, TRACE3D shows a promising performance, and hence, it seems possible to apply this algorithm as a nowcasting tool.  ...  Tracking is done in that the position of a cell in a new radar image is predicted by an extrapolation procedure based on its former position; special care is taken in case of possible splitting and merging  ...  Beheng for initiating the development of TRACE3D and for critical proofreading of this article that improved the text significantly.  ...

Examining and improving the effectiveness of relevance feedback for retrieval of scanned text documents

Adenike M. Lam-Adesina, Gareth J.F. Jones
2006 Information Processing & Management  
In particular relevance feedback query-expansion methods, which are often effective for improving electronic text retrieval, are observed to be less reliable for retrieval of scanned document images.  ...  These methods are shown experimentally to improve the effectiveness of relevance feedback for errorful OCR transcriptions.  ...  TREC-5 Confusion Track The TREC-5 Confusion track consisted of a "known-item" search, a task in which the system attempts to find a single, partially-remembered, target document from within a document  ...

Term selection for searching printed Arabic

Kareem Darwish, Douglas W. Oard
2002 Proceedings of the 25th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '02  
Since many Arabic documents are available only in print, automating retrieval from collections of scanned Arabic document images using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is an interesting problem.  ...  These factors must be considered when selecting terms for automatic indexing.  ...  ACKNOWLDGEMENTS The authors are grateful to Dr. Phillip Resnik, Mona Diab, Nizar Habash, and David Doermann for his valuable input.  ...

The TREC experiments and their impact on Europe

Alan F. Smeaton, Donna Harman
1997 Journal of information science  
Information retrieval (IR) research on text collections has concentrated on improving the effectiveness of the indexing and retrieval operations.  ...  In this paper we present an overview of TREC, the way it operates and the specialist "tracks" it supports.  ...  In TREC-4 and TREC-5 some of the tracks have been: • multiple database merging, where distributed information retrieval was simulated by taking a large collection of documents broken into 10 non-overlapping  ...
