[Information Retrieval]: Groups are being formed

For the practical work, the count now is at ten groups but if students have not submitted their proposals to all teachers, we may have missed some. Groups are visible in the Email/Group section of this TeleTOP-site. Group J doesn't exist to avoid confusion with group I, which does exist; Group O doesn't exist because the difference between “Oh” and zero is small.

[Information Retrieval]: The practical work has started

Today, the assignments were discussed. Groups of two students should choose an assignment and send an e-mail to the teachers with their plan before the next week (22nd of November). If you want to work on a custom project, make sure you get permission. The plan should contain:

  • Names of the group members
  • Chosen assignment
  • Approach and timeline
  • (Optionally, if you come up with your own assignment: a project description)

For a project guide, see the TeleTOP Roster section.

[Information Retrieval]: Welcome to the course Information Retrieval

Next Wednesday, 6 September, we start our full semester course Information Retrieval. I think we have put together and interesting course with a number of national and international guest speakers such as Iadh Ounis from the University of Glasgow who is one of the architects of the Terrier system.

In November, we will switch from lectures to small research projects in students participate actively in research done at the University of Twente. In this second part, the meetings will be used to set up a discussion forum in which all participants actively exchange their ideas, progress and problems encountered.

If you did not already do so, please buy the reader Information Retrieval.
We wish you a fruitful course!
