Abstract

This paper describes the setup and results of the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik’s contributions for the INEX 2006 AdHoc Track and Feedback task. The runs were produced with the TopX system, which is a top-k retrieval engine for text and XML data that uses a combination of BM25-based content and structural scores.
