************** SPMRL 2013 SHARED TASK ************** The fourth SPMRL workshop (www.spmrl.org), collocated with EMNLP 2013, hosts the first shared task on parsing morphologically rich languages.
***** Summary ***** It's still possible to participate to the SPMRL 2013 shared task: a multilingual, multiframework shared task on statistical parsing of morphologically-rich language!
Webpage (official): http://www.spmrl.org/spmrl2013-sharedtask.html test submission deadline : August 18, 2013 (test data release: July 28, 2013)
***** Introduction *****
The primary goal of the shared task on parsing morphologically rich languages is to bring forward work on parsing morphologically ambiguous input in both dependency and constituency parsing, and to show the state of the art for MRLs. In the longer term, we aim to provide streamlined data sets and evaluation metrics, thus improving the comparability of cross-linguistic work on parsing MRLs. The shared task features tracks in constituency parsing and in dependency parsing, in gold as well as in realistic scenarios (the realistic scenario will have no gold tokenization, no gold part-of-speech tags and morphological features).
***** Data set ***** The participants will be provided with data from 9 different languages: Arabic, Basque, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Korean, Polish, Swedish. The data are available in Penn Treebank bracketing format, CoNLL-X format and optionally in TiGerXML. In order to ease cross-linguistic comparisons, the data set are also released with a common training size setting (ie. 5000 sentences).
***** Shared Task Schedule ***** Release of training and dev. data June 6 Release of test data July 28 Deadline for submission of test runs August 18 Submission and announcement of results August 23 Shared task papers due (provisional) September 4 Shared task camera ready papers due September 16
