Retrieval in the Intellectual Property Domain

The CLEF-IP track was launched in 2009 to investigate IR techniques for patent retrieval and was part of the CLEF 2009 evaluation campaign.  From 2010 to 2013, the track was organized as a benchmarking activity of the CLEF 2010-2013 conferences.

The project was supported by the PROMISE Network of Excellence (co-funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission).

The image tasks were supported by the IMPEX project (funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency - FFG).
