	abstract     = {In this paper, we model learning to rank algorithms based on structural dependencies in hierarchical multi-label text categorization (TC). Our method uses the classification probability of the binary classifiers of a standard top-down approach to generate k-best hypotheses. The latter are generated according to their global probability while at the same time satisfy the structural constraints between father and children nodes. The rank is then refined using Support Vector Machines and tree kernels applied to a structural representation of hypotheses, i.e., a hierarchy tree in which the outcome of binary one-vs-all classifiers is directly marked in its nodes. Our extensive experiments on the whole Reuters Corpus Volume 1 show that our models significantly improve over the state of the art in TC, thanks to the use of structural dependecies.},
