Abstract

This papers describes the participation of the SINAI research group in the medical and photo retrieval ImageCLEF tasks. The approach for medical retrieval continues our usage of the MeSH ontology for query expansion, but comparing it to term expansion within the documents in the collection. Regarding the photo retrieval task, diversity of top results has been pursued by applying a clustering algorithm. For both tasks, results and dicussion are included. In general, no relevant findings were obtained with the novel approaches applied.
