------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PAN @ CLEF: Call for Participation -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite you to take part in one of the following evaluations:

1. Plagiarism Detection -- Given a document, is it an original? This task is divided into source retrieval and text alignment. Source retrieval is about searching for likely sources of a suspicious document. Text alignment is about matching passages of reused text between documents.

2. Author Identification -- Given a document, who wrote it? This task focuses on authorship verification and methods to answer the question whether two given documents have the same author or no. This question accurately emulates the real-world problem that most forensic linguists face every day.

3. Author Profiling -- Given a document, what's its author's age / gender? This task is concerned with predicting an author's demographics from her writing. Besides being personally identifiable, an author's style may also reveal her age and gender. Accurate predictors are of key interest to forensic linguists and marketers alike.

PAN is held in conjunction with the CLEF'13 conference in Valencia, Spain.
