This task proposes a challenge to support the interaction of end-users with applications, micro-services and software APIs using natural language. The task aims at evolving the discussions around the application of natural language processing techniques within the context of end-user natural language programming.

Recent advances in Natural Language Processing bring the opportunity of improving the interaction between users and software artefacts, supporting end-users programming mediated by natural language. This ability to match users' action intents and information needs to formal actions within a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), using the semantics of natural language as the mediation layer between both, can significantly impact the accessibility of software development.

This SemEval task aims at developing the state-of-the-art discussions and techniques concerning the semantic interpretation of natural language commands and user action intents, bridging the semantic gap between users and software artefacts.

*The Task:*

The test collection consists of a set of natural language commands. Each natural language command is mapped to one or more actions within the APIs Knowledge Base (KB). The interpretation of the natural language command and its mapping to the API is also dependent on the user personal context (User KB), which contains the user personal data (contacts, addresses, emails, phones, ...).
