Fifth Open Challenge on Question Answering over Linked Data

www.sc.cit-ec.uni-bielefeld.de/qald ------------------------------------------------------------

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce QALD-5, the fifth instalment of the open challenge on question answering over linked data. QALD-5 is part of the QA lab at CLEF 2015 (http://nlp.uned.es/clef-qa/) and puts a strong focus on multilinguality as well as on hybrid approaches using information from both structured and unstructured data.

The challenge is aimed at all systems that mediate between a user, expressing his or her information need in natural language (either as question or keywords, provided in seven languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Dutch, Romanian), and RDF data (in this case, DBpedia 3.10).

A full description of the challenge as well as the training data can be found at the following location:
