Math IR Happening at MIR 2012
The MIR 2012 workshop will feature a friendly competition for the systems presented at the workshop. Since math information retrieval is still quite young and developing, we will not make this an official competition, but a happening, where we get together and test our system on a common set of problems. We expect the happening to transcend the workshop proper.
The aim of the MIR happening is to jointly gain a better understanding into the information retrieval needs of mathematicians and the respective strengths and weaknesses of the respective IR approaches and systems. As a tangible result of the happening the organizers will compile a survey paper and report of this newly-gained understanding.
In particular, it is not an aim of the MIR happening to determine "winners" of the competition in any form. That may be an aim of a subsequent competition, when we have a better grip on the problems and possible evaluation approaches.
We plan to conduct the happening via three challenges:
MIR Judges Panel
We have invited a panel of mathematicians participating in CICM as a
FAQ: open issues to be discussed
These questions and partial answers, which we adopt for the MIR happening are here.
