This report is an overview of Cross-Language Information Retrieval Task (CLIR) at the third NTCIR Workshop. There are 3 tracks in CLIR: Single Language IR (SLIR), Bilingual CLIR (BLIR), and Multilingual CLIR (MLIR). The scope, schedule, test collections, search results, relevance judgment, scoring results, and the preliminary analyses are described in the(More)
The purpose of this paper is to overview research efforts at the NTCIR-5 CLIR task, which is a project of large-scale retrieval experiments on cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR) of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and English. The project has three sub-tasks, multi-lingual IR (MLIR), bilingual IR (BLIR), and single language IR (SLIR), in which many(More)

This paper describes characteristics of the Korean Test Collection constructed for Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) task at the third NTCIR workshop. We first give summary statistics and then provide further analyses of the collection using the search results and relevance judgments. More specifically, we report on our preliminary analyses on(More)
The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-VEGF receptor (VEGFR) signaling pathway is involved in cancer-related biological functions and is a therapeutic target in cancer. However, the influence of epigenetic regulation of VEGF-VEGFR signaling-related genes remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the effects of FLT1 and KDR promoter hypermethylation(More)
In this paper, we propose a semantic negotiation based service framework for the extraction of optimized service information without user intervention in intelligent Machine to Machine (M2M) environment. Proposed semantic negotiation procedure is used for a machine in order to interact with another encountered heterogeneous machine. Through the proposed(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using drug-eluting stents (DES) is an indispensable treatment for coronary artery disease. However, to evaluate the performance of various types of stents for PCI, numerous resources are required. We extracted clinical information from free-text records and, using practice-based evidence,(More)
