A shared task on Sarcasm Detection

As part of the FigLang 2020 workshop, we are organizing a shared task on sarcasm detection. Sarcasm detection has received considerable attention in the NLP community in recent years (Joshi, 2016). This current shared task aims to study the role of conversation context for sarcasm detection (Ghosh et al., 2018). We will be using two different datasets: Twitter conversations and conversation threads from Reddit. For both datasets, we will provide the immediate context (i.e., only the previous dialogue turn) as well as the full dialogue thread, when available. The goal is to understand how much conversation context is needed or helpful for sarcasm detection.

For more information about the shared task and to participate visit our CodaLab site<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fcompetitions.codalab.org%2Fcompetitions%2F22247&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGWNqb_zTYjCeiR0pn1TjKGcLvpig>.
