Abstract

This article presents the LIC2M’s crosslingual retrieval system which participated in the Small Multilingual Track of CLEF 2003. This system is based on a deep linguistic analysis of documents and queries that aims at categorizing them in terms of concepts and implements an original search algorithm inherited from the SPIRIT (EMIR) system that takes into account this categorization.
