We report on experiments for the Related Entity Finding task in which we focus on only using Wikipedia as a target corpus in which to identify (related) entities. Our approach is based on co-occurrences between the source entity and potential target entities. We observe improvements in performance when a context-independent co-occurrence model is combined with context-dependent co-occurrence models in which we stress the importance of the expected relation between source and target entity. Applying type filtering yields further improvements results.
