Abstract: Microblogging sites are important sources of situational information during any natural or man-made disasters. Hence, it is important to design and test Information Retrieval (IR) systems that retrieve information from microblogs during disasters. With this perspective, a track was organized at the 8th meeting of Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation (FIRE) 2016, focused on microblog retrieval during disaster events. A collection of about 50,000 microblogs posted during the Nepal Earthquake in April 2015 was released, along with a set of seven pragmatic information needs during a disaster situation. The task was to retrieve microblogs relevant to these information needs. Ten teams participated in the task, and fifteen runs were submitted. Evaluation of the performances of various microblog retrieval methodologies, as submitted by the participants, revealed several challenges associated with microblog retrieval. In this chapter, we describe our experience in organizing the FIRE track on microblog retrieval during disaster events. Additionally, we propose two novel methodologies for the said task, which perform better than all the methodologies submitted to the FIRE track. © Springer International Publishing AG. 2018.
