14th CLEF in Valencia

The fourteenth CLEF conference was successfully executed in summery Valencia this past week. This year, I was again part of the CLEF-LOC, the lab selection committee. I was very pleased to see how the new evaluation labs this year included so many more stakeholders and practicioners to ensure the validity of the excercise and how the previous labs are moving more and more in this direction.
