Abstract

The Xtrieval framework, built at the Chemnitz University of Technology, aims at analyzing the impact of different retrieval models and methods on retrieval effectiveness. For the Grid@CLEF task 2009, the CIRCO framework was integrated into the Xtrieval framework. 15 runs were performed 15 runs in the three languages German, English, and French. For each language two different stemmers and two different retrieval models were used. One run was a fusion run combining the results of the four other experiments. Whereas the different runs demonstrated that the impact of the used retrieval technologies is highly depending on the corpus, the merged approach produced the best results in each language.
