XML information retrieval (XML-IR) systems aim to better fulfil users’ information need than traditional IR systems by returning results lower than the document level. Historically, these structured queries have been formatted using formal languages such as NEXI. Unfortunately, formal query languages are very complex and too difficult to be used by experienced - let alone casual - users and are too closely bound to the underlying physical structure of the collection. INEX’s NLP task investigates the potential of using natural language to specifying structured queries. QUT has participated in the NLP task with our system NLPX since its inception. Here, we discuss the changes we’ve made to NLPX since last year, including our efforts to port NLPX to Wikipedia. Second, we present the results from the INEX 2006 where NLPX was the best performing participant in the Thorough and Focused tasks.

4 citations in Scopus
1 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
