Workshop SemEval-2018 Task accepted: Counting Events and Participants in the Long Tail



Schermafbeelding 2017-07-04 om 15.40.41Marten Postma, Filip Ilievski, and Piek Vossen are hosting task 5 at SemEval-2018, entitled “Counting Events and Participants within Highly Ambiguous Data covering a very Long Tail”. This is a “referential quantification” task that requires systems to establish the meaning, reference and identity of events and participants in news articles. The task data (texts and answers) are prepared in such a way that the task deliberately exhibits large ambiguity and variation, as well as coverage of long tail phenomena by including a substantial amount of low-frequent, local events and entities.

More information about this referential quantification task can be found in this handout or at the task website.
