Abstract:


The widespread use of XML prompted the development of appropriate searching and browsing methods for XML documents. This explosion of XML retrieval tools requires the development of appropriate testbeds and evaluation methods. As part of a large-scale effort to improve the efficiency of research in information retrieval and digital libraries, the INEX initiative organises an international, coordinated effort to promote evaluation procedures for content-based XML retrieval. The project provides an opportunity for participants to evaluate their retrieval methods using uniform scoring procedures and a forum for participating organisations to compare their results.
