This year’s Consumer Health Search – Information Retrieval (IR) task continues the growth path identified in previous year’s CLEF eHealth IR challenges. The 2020 task uses the representative web corpus used in the 2018 challenge. This year we offer spoken queries, as well as textual transcripts of these queries.
The task is structured into a number of optional subtasks, covering ad-hoc search using the spoken queries, textual transcripts of the spoken queries, or provided automatic speech-to-text conversions of the spoken queries.
