The Cultural Heritage in CLEF (CHiC) pilot evaluation lab aims at moving towards a systematic and large-scale evaluation of cultural heritage digital libraries and information access systems. Data test collections and queries will come from the cultural heritage domain (in 2012 from Europeana) and tasks will contain a mix of conventional system-oriented evaluation scenarios (e.g. ad-hoc retrieval and semantic enrichment) for the CH domain, i.e. a variability task to present a particular good overview ("must sees") over the different objects types and categories in the collection targeted towards a casual user.
CHiC 2012 will take place at the CLEF conference in september 17-20 in Rome.
