TREC Blog track will run in 2009
Following our previous post, I'm pleased to report that we have just heard that the TREC program committee has accepted our proposal for the blog track to continue in 2009.
The intention is to use a larger Blog collection, and to have at least one search task that goes beyond topical relevance by taking into account a facet representing an attribute of required "quality".
There will be a workshop to discuss the proposed blog search tasks at the TREC 2008 conference on the afternoon of Thursday 20th November 2008.
If you cannot attend TREC, and wish to make any comments or suggestions, please feel free to post your thoughts in this post, or to email them privately, if you wish so.
