==============================**============================ BioNLP Shared Task 2013 -- Training Data Release and First call for Participation ==============================**==============================

We are pleased to announce the start of the BioNLP Shared Task, the information extraction task for biology. It is open to any interested participants.

<Data> We are beginning the release of training and development data sets of BioNLP shared task 2013. They are publicly available on the task Web pages of the BioNLP Shared Task 2013 website: http://2013.bionlp-st.org/**tasks <http://2013.bionlp-st.org/tasks>

Release of data sets for some tasks are being delayed, but should be completed within a couple of days, which will be notified to the registered people. Supporting resources will be released in a couple of days.

<Registration> Registration for participation to the BioNLP Shared Task is required. Registration is open at the BioNLP Shared Task 2013 website: http://2013.bionlp-st.org/**participation<http://2013.bionlp-st.org/participation>

Please register to bionlp-st.org list for regular email update by sending an e-mail to majordomo at bionlp-st.org with 'subscribe bionlp-st' in the body of the message. Registered people will be updated with frequent news about the shared task, e.g. release of supporting tools, resources, revisions, or other news.

<Workshop> The BioNLP ST workshop will be co-hosted with the ACL/HLT 2013 BioNLP workshop, to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, August 8-9 Participants will be invited to submit manuscripts describing their systems to the BioNLP ST workshop.

<Context> The BioNLP Shared Task series represents a community-wide trend in text-mining for biology toward fine-grained information extraction (IE). The two previous events, the BioNLP 2009 and 2011 shared task attracted wide attention, with numerous teams submitting final results. The task setup and data have since served as the basis of numerous studies and published event extraction systems and datasets. The BioNLP Shared Task 2013 (BioNLP-ST'13) follows the general outline and goals of the previous tasks. It identifies biologically relevant extraction targets and proposes a linguistically motivated approach to event representation. BioNLP-ST'13 tasks also covers many new hot topics in the biology domain that are close to biologist needs.

As in previous editions, manually annotated data are provided for training, development and evaluation of the participating extraction methods.

The six BioNLP-ST 2013 event extraction tasks are

- [GE] Genia Event Extraction for NFkB knowledge base construction - [CG] Cancer Genetics - [PC] Pathway Curation - [GRO] Corpus Annotation with Gene Regulation Ontology - [RNB] Gene Regulation Network in Bacteria - [BB] Microorganism Biotope (semantic annotation by an ontology)
