IJCNLP 2017 Shared Tasks will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, at Taipei Nangang Exhibitation Hall on December 1st, 2017. The topics of the shared tasks cover 1) grammatical error diagnosis, 2) sentiment analysis, 3) product review summarization and customer feedback analysis and 4) question-answering.
Please visit each task website as listed below for more information.
1. Shared Task on Chinese Grammatical Error Diagnosis (CGED)
Participants will build systems to automatically detect the errors in Chinese sentences (error existence, types and position) made by Chinese-as-Second-Language learners. Four error types are annotated in the corpus for training, i.e. redundant word, missing word, word selection and word ordering. There were three previous events of the shared task (2014, 2015 and 2016).

2. Dimensional Sentiment Analysis for Chinese Phrases
Given a word or phrase, participants are asked to provide a real-valued score from 1 to 9 for both valence and arousal dimensions, indicating the degree from most negative to most positive for valence, and from most calm to most excited for arousal.

3. Review Opinion Diversification
Participants will build systems to rank top-k reviews as a summary of opinions of product reviews in three different ways. The shared task will use a subset of Amazon SNAP product reviews dataset for experiments. It contains reviews of products in different categories, e.g., 22,000,000+ reviews of books and 7,000,000+ reviews of electronics products.

4. Shared Task on Customer Feedback Analysis
Understanding and being able to react to customer feedback is the most fundamental task in providing good customer service. The shared task will provide a corpus annotated using a five-class categorization (comment, request, bug, complaint and meaningless) from a pilot study of ADAPT-Microsoft joint research project. Participants will train classifiers for the detection of meanings in customer feedback in English, Spanish and Japanese.
