Call for Participation SEMEVAL 2014 Task 10 -- Multilingual STS: English & Spanish

SEMEVAL 2014 workshop will be co-located with COLING 2014 in Dublin Ireland, http://www.coling-2014.org/

Building on the semantic textual similarity (STS) task from SEMEVAL 2012 and 2013 *SEM Shared Task, this year's STS brings a multilingual flair, as we announce the SEMEVAL Task 10: Multilingual Semantic Textual Similarity. This task features separate tracks for English and Spanish, yet teams are encouraged to participate in both evaluations. STS-EN 2014 is an expanded version of the 2013 task with more varied data sets. STS-ES 2014 follows the same setup as its sister subtask, yet it introduces a new layer of difficulty as we shift focus to Spanish and explore the challenges posed by the lower availability of electronic resources in this language (when compared to English).

Please check out the task's webpage at http://alt.qcri.org/semeval2014/task10/ for more details.
