The Lowlands at TREC

by Robin Aly, Djoerd Hiemstra, Dolf Trieschnigg, and Thomas Demeester

We describe the participation of the Lowlands at the Web Track and the FedWeb track of TREC 2013. For the Web Track we used the MIREX MapReduce library with out-of-the-box approaches. For the FedWeb Track we adapted our shard selection method Taily for resource selection. Our results are above the median performance of TREC participants.

Presented at the 22nd Text REtrieval Conference (TREC) at the USA National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, USA
