It is highly recommended that you follow a textbook while taking the lecture. The textbooks are probably able to address the most question you might have about the content of the lecture:
- Introduction to Information Retrieval. Manning, Raghavan, Schütze, Cambridge University Press, 2008.
Free, electronic versions available at http://informationretrieval.org/
- Web Data Mining. Liu. Springer, 2007.
- Modern Information Retrieval. Baeza-Yates, Ribeiro-Neto, ACM Press, 2012.
Students need to accomplish at least 50% of the assignments in order to attend the final exam. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden and will result in disqualification from the final exam, on both sides of the plagiarism (copying and being copied). Students are also expected to explain some of the assignments.
Last Year Students
Students who failed to secure passing grades last year can directly appear for the examinations this year. However, it is advisable to participate in the course and the tutorials.
