This event brought together researchers and developers to create a set of evaluation resources showing how to use Lucene to perform typical IR operations (i.e. indexing, retrieval, etc.) as well as how to extend, modify and work with Lucene to extract typical statistics, implement typical retrieval models, and to evaluate various TREC tasks. Over the course of days, attendees participated in a hackathon to build these resources, share knowledge about the platform, and to create a road map for future development. The tools and resources built during the workshop/hackathon were uploaded to GitHub and shared with the community.

Diego Ceccarelli, Software Engineer, will present Learning to Rank with Solr. For more details, click here.
