A submission from ADAPT researchers took first place in the NTCIR-12 Spoken Query and Spoken Document Retrieval 2 (SpokenQuery&Doc-2) Slide-Group-Segment task. 

SpokenQuery&Doc-2 forms part of the NTCIR-12 evaluation benchmark campaign which focuses on search tasks in East Asian languages. The ADAPT Centre submission, which was developed by David Racca under the supervision of Professor Gareth Jones, will be presented at the NTCIR-12 conference in Tokyo and again in more detail at ACM SIGIR 2016 in July.
