The paper describes evaluation resources for concept-based, cross-lingual information retrieval in the medical domain. All resources were constructed in the context of the MuchMore project and are freely available through the project website. Available resources include: a bilingual, parallel document collection of German and English medical scientific abstracts, a set of queries and corresponding relevance assessments, two manually disambiguated test sets for semantic annotation (sense disambiguation), two evaluation lists for German morphological decomposition of medical terms.
