The Development and Evolution of TREC and DUC

Published

Author(s)

Donna K. Harman

Abstract

The Text REtrieval Conference (TREC) has been running for 11 years now, with 93 participants in the last round of evaluation. This paper chronicles the changes in TREC over that time, emphasizing the evolution in the tasks that were evaluated rather than discussing the results of the specific evaluations. The development of the new Document Understanding Conference (DUC) is also discussed, including the evaluation issues that have surfaced during its first two years.
