Abstract : We consider the Structured Information Retrieval task which consists in ranking nested textual units according to their relevance for a given query, in a collection of structured documents. We propose to improve the performance of a baseline Information Retrieval system by using a learning ranking algorithm which operates on scores computed from document elements and from their local structural context. This model is trained to optimize a Ranking Loss criterion using a training set of annotated examples composed of queries and relevance judgments on a subset of the document elements. The model can produce a ranked list of documents elements which fulfills a given information need expressed in the query. We analyze the performance of our algorithm on the INEX collection and compare it to a baseline model which is an adaptation of Okapi to Structured Information Retrieval.
