The organizers of the newly established CLEF-IP track would like to invite you to participate in the 2009 evaluation campaign!
The new Intellectual Property track within the Cross-Language Evaluation Forum has two main goals - the creation of a large test collection of multi-lingual European patents - the evaluation of retrieval techniques in the patents domain
The track will focus on the task of prior art search. Participation in the track requires no manual relevance assessments. Participants are just invited to apply their retrieval method of preference for a given set of topics and submit their results. A subset of the resulting collection will be double-checked by Intellectual Property search professionals.
The track will utilize a collection of >1M patent documents in English French and German in XML format. For more information and how to participate please visit http://www.ir-facility.org/the_irf/clef-ip09-track <http://www.ir-facility.org/the_irf/clef-ip09-track>
The track is coordinated by: John Tait, Information Retrieval Facility Giovanna Roda, Matrixware
