Using COTS Search Engines and Custom Query Strategies at CLEF

By David Nadeau, Mario Jarmasz, Caroline Barrière, George Foster and Claude St-Jacques


This paper presents a system for bilingual information retrieval using commercial off-the-shelf search engines (COTS). Several custom query construction, expansion and translation strategies are compared. We present the experiments and the corresponding results for the CLEF 2004 event
