Our approach is based on inferring relevance assessments from references extracted from patent documents. This should enable the creation of high quality, realistic judgements in a cost effective manner. Our future work will be directed towards refining and implementing the proposed methodology.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
