The laboratories are aimed at continuing and expanding on the traditional CLEF track philosophy. Two different forms of labs are offered: benchmarking activities proposing evaluation tasks and comparative performance analyses, and workshop-style labs that explore issues of information access evaluation and related fields.
Six benchmarking activities are proposed:
A benchmarking activity on the experimental evaluation of image retrieval, focusing on the combination of textual and visual retrieval, including multilingual retrieval and language-independent information access.
A benchmarking activity on the evaluation of Machine Reading systems through Question Answering and Reading Comprehension Tests.
A benchmarking activity on Multilingual Log File Analysis: Language identification, query classification, success of a query.
A benchmarking activity on the Evaluation of music search engines that are based both on audio content and on multilingual textual descriptions.
A benchmarking activity on intellectual property.
