The project contains new proposed techniques for semantic query expansion in Arabic language monolingual retrieval. The techniques were proposed in two publications: 

  • 1- 2015: Mohamed A. Zahran, Ahmed Magooda, Ashraf Y. Mahgoub, Hazem Raafat, Amir Atyia and Mohsen Rashwan "Word Representations in Vector Space and their Applications for Arabic". In the 16th International Conferenceon Intelligent Text Processing and Computational Linguistics (CICLing), April 14–20, 2015, Cairo, Egypt.   
  • 2- 2014: Ashraf Y., Mahgoub, Mohsen. A. Rashwan, Hazem Raafat, Mohamed. A., Zahran, and Magda B. Fayek. "Semantic Query Expansion for Arabic Information Retrieval." EMNLP: The Arabic Natural Language Processing Workshop, Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing, Doha, Qatar. 
Also I participated in a project for plagiarism detection from Arabic Documents in Pan@fire2015 and won both extrinsic and intrinsic competitions:  
  • 3- 2015: Ashraf Y., Mahgoub, Ahmed Magooda, Mohsen. A. Rashwan, Hazem Raafat, and Magda B. Fayek. “RDI system for Intrinsic Plagiarism Detection”, Pan@Fire2015. 
  • 4- 2015: Ahmed Magooda, Ashraf Y., Mahgoub, Mohsen. A. Rashwan, Hazem Raafat, and Magda B. Fayek. “RDI system for Extrinsic Plagiarism Detection”, Pan@Fire2015.
