Abstract:

The Enterprise track of TREC 2008 comprised of the same two tasks as in the previous years an ad-hoc document search and an expert search. The document search consisted in retrieving documents that best matched real-life queries submitted by users to the CSIRO corporation. Systems were allowed to retrieve and rank up to a 1000 documents. The expert search consisted in locating the CSIRO staff who is best able to respond to the query formulated by the users. This year was our first participation in TREC-ENT. We explored three major approaches to information retrieval using various existing methods and systems. These approaches ranged from domain knowledge mapping to QA.
