Abstract

A branch of Distributed Information Retrieval(DIR) is Peer-to-Peer Information Retrieval (P2PIR). Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks are a recently evolved paradigm for distributed computing and many researchers are developing new algorithms for such systems. Evaluate algorithms performance, in a P2P network, is already a challenging task caused by the lack of realistic test beds. The construction of standard test beds to evaluate search approaches and to compare them is a major open problem. Indeed, the poverty of documents and queries representation, in test bed, limits retrieval opportunities. This study addresses the lack of an adequate test bed that can be used to evaluate peer-to-peer information retrieval approaches. In particular, we propose, in this paper, a test bed based on an already existing test bedand on a semantic resource enrichment.
