This report constitutes the proceedings of the ninth Text REtrieval Conference (TREC-9). The conference was co-sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Advanced Research and Development Agency (ARDA). Approximately 175 people attended the conference, including representatives from 17 countries. The conference was the ninth in an on-going series of workshops to evaluate new technologies for text retrieval and related information-seeking tasks. The seven tracks included in TREC-9 were Web retrieval, cross-language retrieval, spoken document retrieval, query analysis, question answering, interactive retrieval, and filtering. A total of 69 groups submitted retrieval results to one or more of the workshop's tracks. The workshop included paper sessions and discussion groups. This proceedings includes papers from most of the participants, track reports that define the problem addressed by the track plus summarize the main track results, and tables of individual group results.
