CoNLL Shared Task 2007
Third and Definitely Final Call for Participation
Due to problems with the e-mail address
for registrations, the deadline has
been extended to January 26.
The shared task at the Conference on Computational Natural
Language Learning (CoNLL) 2007 will for the second year
running be devoted to dependency parsing. Unlike in 2006,
there will be two separate tracks:
1. Multilingual Track: The first track of the shared task
will be organized in the same way as the 2006 task (see
http://nextens.uvt.nl/~conll/) with annotated training
and test data from a wide range of languages, which should
be processed with one and the same parsing system. The
languages this year will be Arabic, Basque, Catalan, Chinese,
Czech, English, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, and Turkish.
2. Domain Adaptation Track: The second track of the shared
task will investigate techniques for adapting current parsing
technologies to domains outside of the data from which they
were trained. The single language for this track will be
English and the data will consist of 1) a large annotated
training set of news related text, 2) a small annotated
development data set of non-news text, 3) one or more small
test data sets of non-news text, 4) large unlabeled
corpora extracted from the domains of the training,
development and test data.
The shared task will be part of the joint EMNLP-CoNLL conference
to be held in conjunction with ACL-07 in Prague, June 28-30, 2007.
The important dates for the shared task are as follows (please
note that some dates have been shifted slightly after the first
