======================================================== WMT 2016 Shared Task on Cross-lingual Pronoun Prediction ========================================================

Website: https://www.idiap.ch/workshop/DiscoMT/shared-task

At DiscoMT 2017 (collocated with EMNLP 2017)

We are pleased to announce an exciting cross-lingual pronoun prediction task for people interested in (discourse-aware) machine translation, anaphora resolution and machine learning in general.

Participants are invited to submit systems for: EN-FR ES-EN EN-DE DE-EN

In the cross-lingual pronoun prediction task, participants are asked to predict a target-language pronoun given a source-language pronoun in the context of a sentence. For example, in the English-French sub-task, to predict the correct translation of "it" or "they" into French (ce, elle, elles, il, ils, cela, on, OTHER). You may use any type of information that can be extracted from the documents. We provide training and development data and a simple baseline system using an N-gram language model.
