Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademic


We describe the participation of the Lowlands at the Web Track and the FedWeb track of TREC 2013. For the Web Track we used the Mirex Map-Reduce library with out-of-the- box approaches and for the FedWeb Track we adapted our shard selection method Taily for resource selection. Here, our results were above median and close to the maximum performance achieved.
