We describe our runs and results for the Rich Speech Re-
trieval (RSR) Task at MediaEval 2011. Our runs examine
the use of alternative segmentation methods on the provided
ASR transcripts to locate the beginning of the topic, assum-
ing that this will capture or get close to the starting point of the relevant segment; combination of various types of queries and weighting of metadata to move the relevant segment higher in the ranked list; and dierent ASR transcripts to compare the in uence of the ASR transcripts quality. Our results show that newer versions of the transcripts and use of metadata produce better results on average. So far we have not used information about the illocutionary act type corresponding to each query, but analysis of the retrieval results shows dierence in behaviour for queries associated with certatin classes of act.
