In this paper, we describe and analyze our participation to the CLEF – CHIC2013, both in the multilingual and Polish tasks. These tasks were classical ad hoc search within a corpus composed of short descriptions of CH objects written in Polish language (for the Polish task) and 13 different languages (for the multilingual task). The IR task is rather complex due to very short descriptions, written with broad terms and the difficulty of having a precise meaning of the real user’s information needs. The complexity of the morphology of the various languages used to describe the CH objects clearly increased the difficulty of this IR task. Our experiments aim to explore the retrieval effectiveness of various IR strategies when facing with such multilingual short descriptions of CH objects and topic formulations.
