  abstract =     "One crucial task of learning to rank in the field of
                 information retrieval (IR) is to determine an ordering
                 of documents according to their degree of relevance to
                 the user given query. In this paper, a learning method
                 is proposed named AdaGP-Rank by applying boosting
                 techniques to genetic programming. This approach uses
                 genetic programming to evolve ranking functions while a
                 process inspired from AdaBoost technique helps the
                 evolved ranking functions concentrate on the ranking of
                 those documents associating those `hard' queries. Based
                 on the confidence coefficients, the ranking functions
                 obtained at each boosting round are then combined into
                 a final strong ranker. Experiments conform that
                 AdaGP-Rank has general better performance than several
                 state-of-the-art ranking algorithms on the benchmark
                 data sets.",
