CoNLL Shared Task 2012: Call for Proposals

CoNLL Shared Task 2012: Call for Proposals

SIGNLL (ACL's Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning)
invites proposals for the CoNLL Shared Task 2012. Since 1999, CoNLL
(the Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning) has
included a shared task in which training and test data are provided
by the organizers, which allows participating systems to be evaluated
and compared in a systematic way. Descriptions of the participating
systems and an evaluation of their performance are presented both at
the conference and in the proceedings. Previous shared tasks have
been devoted to chunking (1999, 2000), clausing (2001), named entity
recognition (2002, 2003), semantic role labeling (2004, 2005),
dependency parsing (2006, 2007), joint parsing of syntactic and
semantic dependencies (2008, 2009), hedge detection (2010), and
co-reference resolution (2011). For CoNLL-2012, to be held jointly
with EMNLP in conjunction with ACL in Jeju, Korea, July 12 to 14, 2012,
proposals are invited for any shared task involving natural language
learning, including not only natural language processing tasks and
applications but also the modeling of human language learning.

Proposals should contain the following information:
- Names and affiliations of the members of the organizing committee
      (including a designated contact person)
- Description of the shared task, including its relevance for the
      study of computational natural language learning
- Description of the process for selecting, acquiring and preparing the
      data for training and evaluation, including conditions of
      availability
- Description of the procedure for evaluating the performance of
      participating systems, including the availability of evaluation
