The goal of CENTRE@CLEF 2018 is to run a joint CLEF/NTCIR/TREC task on challenging participants to reproduce best results of the most interesting systems submitted in previous editions of CLEF/NTCIR/TREC and to contribute back to the community the additional components and resources developed to reproduce the results (lab flyer available here).
The CENTRE@CLEF 2018 lab will offer two pilot tasks:
- Task 1 - Replicability: the task will focus on the replicability of selected methods on the same experimental collections;
- Task 2 - Reproducibility: the task will focus on the reproducibility of selected methods on the different experimental collections.
Since CENTRE is a joint CLEF/NTCIR/TREC activity, participants in Tasks 1 and 2 will be challenged to reproduce methods and systems developed in all the evaluation campaigns, i.e. CLEF will challenge against NTCIR and TREC results in addition to CLEF results.
To participate in the lab, the groups need to register (by April, 27) at the following link:
