Towards evaluation of personalized and collaborative information retrieval (2011)

Abstract We propose to extend standard information retrieval (IR) ad-hoc test collection design to facilitate research on personalized and collaborative IR by gathering additional meta-information during the topic (query) development process. We propose a controlled query generation process with activity logging for each topic developer. The standard ad-hoc collection will thus be accompanied by a new set of thematically related topics and the associated log information, and has the potential to simulate a real-world search scenario to encourage retrieval systems to mine user information from the logs to improve IR effectiveness. The proposed methodology described in this paper will be applied in a pilot task which is scheduled to run in the FIRE 2011 evaluation campaign. The task aims at investigating the research question of whether personalized and collaborative IR retrieval experiments and evaluation can be pursued by enriching a standard ad-hoc collection with such meta-information.
