------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PAN 2015: Call for Participation -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

1. Plagiarism Detection -- Given a document, is it an original? This task studies source retrieval and text alignment, i.e. retrieving likely sources of a suspicious document, and aligning reused passages of text between them.

2. Author Identification -- Given a document, who wrote it? This task focuses on authorship verification and methods that tell us whether two given documents have the same author; a frequent challenge of forensic linguistics.

3. Author Profiling -- Given a document, what're its author's personal traits? This task is concerned with predicting an author's demographics from her Twitter tweets. For example, an author's style may reveal her age, gender, and personality.

PAN is held in conjunction with the CLEF'15 conference in Toulouse, France.
