This report constitutes the proceedings of the 2001 Text REtrieval Conference (TREC 2001). 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 21 countries. The conference was the tenth in an on-going series of workshops to evaluate new technologies for text retrieval and related information-seeking tasks. A new video "track" that focused on supporting content-based access to digital video was introduced this year. The other tracks included in TREC 2001 were Web retrieval, cross-language retrieval, question answering, interactive retrieval, and filtering. A total of 87 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.
