The goal of the enterprise track is to conduct experiments with enterprise data --- intranet pages, email archives, document repositories --- that reflect the experiences of users in real organizations, such that for example, an email ranking technique that is effective here would be a good choice for deployment in a real multi-user email search application. This involves both understanding user needs in enterprise search and development of appropriate IR techniques. There were two tasks this year, email discussion search and expert search, and both represent refinements of the tasks initially done in 2005. NIST developed topics and relevance judgments for the email discussion search task this year. For expert search, rather than relying on found data as last year, the track participants created the topics and relevance judgments. Twenty-five groups took part across the two tasks.
