The track included three tasks Ad Hoc i.e., single-pass automatic search, Relevance Feedback two-pass search in a controlled setting with some relevant and nonrelevant documents manually marked after the first pass and Interactive in which real users could iteratively refine their queries andor engage in multi-pass relevance feedback. This paper describes the design of the three tasks and presents the official results.
