Beyond TREC's filtering track

Nanas, Nikolaos; Uren, Victoria; De Roeck, Anne and Domingue, John (2004). Beyond TREC's filtering track. In: In Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC04), Springer, pp. 1651–1654.



Following the withdrawal of the filtering track from the latest TREC conferences, there is a niche for new evaluation standards. Towards this end, we suggest, based on variations of TREC's routing subtask, two new evaluation methodologies. The first can be used for evaluating single, multi-topic profiles and the second for testing the ability of a multi-topic profile to adapt to both modest variations and radical drifts in user interests.
