Abstract:


The first Clef-Ip test collection has been made available in 2009 to support research in IR methods in the intellectual property domain; only one type of retrieval task (Prior Art Search) was given to the users. Since then the test collection has been extended with both more content and varied types of tasks, re ecting various speci c parts of patent expert´s work fl ows. In 2013 we organized two retrieval tasks - Passage Retrieval Starting from Claims and Structure Recognition - on
which we report in this work.
