Overview of the INEX 2009 Entity Ranking Track
In some situations search engine users would prefer to retrieve entities instead of just documents. Example queries include “Italian Nobel prize winners”, “Formula 1 drivers that won the Monaco Grand Prix”, or “German spoken Swiss cantons”. The XML Entity Ranking (XER) track at INEX creates a discussion forum aimed at standardizing evaluation procedures for entity retrieval. This paper describes the XER tasks and the evaluation procedure used at the XER track in 2009, where a new version of Wikipedia was used as underlying collection; and summarizes the approaches adopted by the participants.
