Abstract

This paper describes the participation of the system AliQAn in the CLEF 2008 Spanish monolingual QA task. This time, the main goals of the current version of AliQAn were to deal with topic-related questions and to decrease the number of inexact answers. We have also explored the use of the Wikipedia corpora, which have posed some new challenges for the QA task.
