Ranking is a central task of many Information Retrieval (IR) problems, particularly challenging in the case of large-scale Web col- lections where it involves effectiveness requirements and efficiency con- straints that are not common to other ranking-based applications. This paper describes QuickRank, a C++ suite of efficient and effective Learn- ing to Rank (LtR) algorithms that allows high-quality ranking functions to be devised from possibly huge training datasets. QuickRank is a project with a double goal: i) answering industrial need of Tiscali S.p.A. for a flexible and scalable LtR solution for learning ranking models from huge training datasets; ii) providing the IR research community with a flexi- ble, extensible and efficient LtR framework to design LtR solutions and fairly compare the performance of different algorithms and ranking mod- els. This paper presents our choices in designing QuickRank and report some preliminary use experiences.
