Abstract

BMIR-J2 is the first complete test collection generally available for evaluating Japanese information retrieval systems. BMIR-J2 features include a novel division of search requests based on various functions required to perform successful retrieval. BMIR-J2 and its smaller predecessor BMIR-J1 were constructed by a volunteer-based working group under the Information Processing Society of Japan. We hope that BMIR-J2 will come into wide use and that it will foster the development of Japanese IR systems.
