The federal technology standards organization is challenging experts to develop advanced text retrieval techniques to create better ways to find information in large digital collections of data.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has announced the eight tracks–or task topics for data-mining research–for its 21st annualText Retrieval Conference (TREC), which highlights the latest in data mining research.

NIST is inviting participants to submit applications for the November conference so they can begin data mining document sets related to those tracks beginning in March.
