RMIT at the TREC 2017 CORE Track


The TREC 2017 CORE Track is a re-run of the classic TREC ad hoc search evaluation campaign, with the vision of establishing new methodologies for creating IR test collections. The previous TREC newswire ad hoc task was the 2004 Robust Track, where the emphasis was on improving the effectiveness of poorly performing topics in previous tracks. The TREC CORE 2017 track reuses the Robust 2004 topic set, for the development of relevance judgments over a new New York Times corpus, composed of newswire articles published between 1987 and 2007. For this task, RMIT contributed three different runs, including two manual, and one automatic run.
