Evaluating the effectiveness of XML retrieval systems requires a test collection where the relevance assessments are provided according to a relevance criterion that takes into account the imposed structural aspects. A test collection as such has been built as a result of two rounds of the Initiative for the Evaluation of XML Retrieval (INEX). This initiative provides an opportunity for participants to evaluate their XML retrieval approaches using uniform scoring procedures and a forum for participants to compare their results. The second round of INEX, INEX 2003, started in March 2003 and ended in December 2003. On December 15-17, 2003, INEX 2003 held its annual workshop in Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany. We first describe the INEX testbed. We then give a brief survey over the approaches presented at the INEX workshop. We continue with a summary of the outcomes of the working group. We finish with some conclusions and outlook for INEX 2004.
