This shared task proposes data to experiment on causality detection, and focuses on determining causality associated to an event or to transformations of financial objects. The data are extracted from a corpus of 2019 financial news provided by QWAM http://www.qwamci.com/. ______________________________________________________________________


The task contains two subtasks: a) Sentence classification This task is a binary classification task. The goal of this subtask is to filter sentences which display causal meanings (1) from the sentences that are noise in regard of causality (0) b) Cause – effect detection This task is a relation extraction task. The aim is to identify, in a text block defined as causal (causal sentence or paragraph), the substring displaying the cause and the substring describing the effect.


DATASET Two datasets, one for each sub-task, will be released as csv files in three parts each: trial set, training set and test set.
