Very nice progress in the OSIRRC 2019 workshop at SIGIR 2019.
Eleven teams have already released a Docker container that executes their experimental IR setup - allowing to replicate their work using the evaluation infrastructure developed by Jimmy Lin and his students, especially for the workshop.
@arjen Docker containers seem like a good way to package experiments for publication and for long-term preservation.
@band definitely much better than before, and very suited for replicability.
The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
