Abstract

This article presents Œdipe, the question answering system that was used by the LIC2M for its participation in the CLEF-QA 2005 evaluation. The LIC2M participates more precisely in the monolingual track dedicated to the French language. The main characteristic of Œdipe is its simplicity: it mainly relies on the association of a linguistic pre-processor that normalizes words and recognizes named entities and the principles of the Vector Space model.
