    abstract = {MC2 CLEF 2017 lab deals with how cultural context of a microblog affects its social impact at large. This involves microblog search, classification, filtering, language recognition, localization, entity extraction, linking open data, and summarization. Regular Lab participants have access to the private massive multilingual microblog stream of The Festival Galleries project. Festivals have a large presence on social media. The resulting mircroblog stream and related URLs is appropriate to experiment advanced social media search and mining methods. A collection of 70,000,000 microblogs over 18 months dealing with cultural events in all languages has been released to test multilingual content analysis and microblog search. For content analysis topics were in any language and results were expected in four languages: English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. For microblog search topics were in four languages: Arabic, English, French and Spanish, and results were expected in any language.},

    abstract = {Diversified query expansion (DQE) based approaches aim to select a set of expansion terms with less redundancy among them while covering as many query aspects as possible. Recently they have experimentally demonstrate their effectiveness for the task of search result diversification. One challenge faced by existing DQE approaches is how to ensure the aspect coverage. In this paper, we propose a novel method for DQE, called compact aspect embedding, which exploits trace norm regularization to learn a low rank vector space for the query, with each eigenvector of the learnt vector space representing an aspect, and the absolute value of its corresponding eigenvalue representing the association strength of that aspect to the query. Meanwhile, each expansion term is mapped into the vector space as well. Based on this novel representation of the query aspects and expansion terms, we design a greedy selection strategy to choose a set of expansion terms to explicitly cover all possible aspects of the query.We test our method on several TREC diversification data sets, and show that our method significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art search result diversification approaches.},

    abstract = {Traditional information retrieval (IR) models use bag-of-words as the basic representation and assume that some form of independence holds between terms. Representing term dependencies and defining a scoring function capable of integrating such additional evidence is theoretically and practically challenging. Recently, Quantum Theory (QT) has been proposed as a possible, more general framework for IR. However, only a limited number of investigations have been made and the potential of QT has not been fully explored and tested. We develop a new, generalized Language Modeling approach for IR by adopting the probabilistic framework of QT. In particular, quantum probability could account for both single and compound terms at once without having to extend the term space artificially as in previous studies. This naturally allows us to avoid the weight-normalization problem, which arises in the current practice by mixing scores from matching compound terms and from matching single terms. Our model is the first practical application of quantum probability to show significant improvements over a robust bag-of-words baseline and achieves better performance on a stronger non bag-of-words baseline.},

    abstract = {Without a well formulated and structured question, it can be very difficult and time consuming for physicians to identify appro- priate resources and search for the best available evidence for medical treatment in evidence-based medicine ({EBM}). In {EBM}, clinical studies and questions involve four aspects: {Population/Problem} (P), Interven- tion (I), Comparison (C) and Outcome (O), which are known as {PICO} elements. It is intuitively more advantageous to use these elements in Information Retrieval ({IR}). In this paper, we first propose an approach to automatically identify the {PICO} elements in documents and queries. We test several possible approaches to use the identified elements in {IR}. Experiments show that it is a challenging task to determine accurately {PICO} elements. However, even with noisy tagging results, we can still take advantage of some {PICO} elements, namely I and P elements, to enhance the retrieval process, and this allows us to obtain significantly better retrieval effectiveness than the state-of-the-art methods.},
