Abstract

In this chapter we explain our participation at ImageCLEF from 2005 to 2009. During these years we have mainly developed systems for the ad hoc and the medical retrieval tasks. Although the different proposed tasks include both visual and textual information, the diverse approaches applied by the participants also include the use of only one type of information. The SINAI group specializes in the management of textual collections. For this reason, our main goal has been to improve the general system by taking advantage of the textual information.
