The use of the PLIERS text retrieval system in TREC8 experiments is described. The tracks entered for are: Ad-Hoc, Filtering (Batch and Routing) and the Web Track (Large only). We describe both retrieval efficiency and effectiveness results for all these tracks. We also describe some preliminary experiments with BM_25 tuning constant variation.
