Abstract

We present our experiments and results for the DCU CNGL participation in the CLEF-IP 2010 Candidate Patent Search Task. Our work applied standard information retrieval (IR) techniques to patent search. In addition, a very simple citation extraction method was applied to improve the results. This was our second consecutive participation in the CLEF-IP tasks. Our experiments in 2009 showed that many sophisticated approach to IR do not improve the retrieval effectiveness for this task. For this reason of we decided to apply only simple methods in 2010. These were demonstrated to be highly competitive with other participants. DCU submitted three runs for the Prior Art Candidate Search Task, two of these runs achieved the second and third ranks among the 25 runs submitted by nine different participants. Our best run achieved MAP of 0.203, recall of 0.618, and PRES of 0.523.
