Wei, L., Robertson, S. & MacFarlane, A. (2007). CISR at INEX 2006. In: Fuhr, N., Lalmas, M. & Trotman, A. (Eds.), Comparative Evaluation of XML Information Retrieval Systems. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 4518. (pp. 57-63). Germany: Springer-Verlag. doi: 10.1007/978-3-540-73888-6_6


In this paper, we describe the Centre for Interactive Systems Research’s participation in the INEX 2006 adhoc track. Rather than using a fieldweighted BM25 model in INEX 2005, we revert back to using the traditional BM25 weighting function. Our main research aims in this year are to investigate the effects of document filtering by result record cut-off, element filtering by length cut-off and the effect of using phrases. The initial results show the latter two methods did not do well, while the first one did well on FOCUSED TASK and RELEVANT IN CONTEXT TASK. Finally, we propose a novel method for BEST IN CONTEXT TASK, and present our initial results.
