  • 2. Happy 10th Birthday CLEF 2009 Workshop 30 September – 2 October, Corfu, Greece
  • 3. CLEF Objectives  Stimulate the development of multilingual IR systems (for European languages !)  Create a CLIR/MLIA community  Construct publicly available test-suites BY  Conducting annual evaluation campaigns  Designing tracks/tasks to meet emerging needs and to stimulate research in the”right” direction Objective: truly multilingual/multimedia systems CLEF 2009 Workshop 30 September – 2 October, Corfu, Greece
