Information Retrieval: a SEPLN tutorial

M D Dunlop
University of Glasgow


Information retrieval systems are concerned with managing information stored in document collections that are searched by users. The algorithms and approaches used in these systems, though relatively simple to explain, are usually hidden from users as the user is often presented with a black box to perform retrieval and is given little information about the processes involved. The aim of this tutorial is to give an overview of how these systems work by giving an introduction to the underlying algorithms.

An invited tutorial to SEPLN 96 - the XII SEPLN Congress will take place on the 11th, 12th, and 13th September 1996 in the English Language Department of the University of Seville.
