The second CL-Aff Shared Task will be held as a part of the 3rd Affective Content Analysis workshop @ AAAI 2020, focusing on Interactive Affective Response. We're hereby announcing the OffMyChest corpus, a new labeled corpus of Reddit conversations tagged with labels about Disclosure and Supportiveness, and pose two challenges to spur the development of supervised and semi-supervised approaches to model interactive affect.
