Call for Participation ChEMU: Cheminformatics Elsevier Melbourne University Chemical Reaction Patent Information Extraction task @ CLEF 2020 https://chemu-patent-ie.github.io/

We are pleased to invite participation in the ChEMU Chemical Patent Information Extraction tasks, is a new evaluation lab at the 11th Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum (CLEF-2020) at CLEF 2020. ChEMU proposes two key information extraction tasks over chemical reactions from patents. • Task 1: Named Entity Recognition involves identifying chemical compounds as well as their types in context, i.e., to assign the label of a chemical compound according to the role which the compound plays within a chemical reaction. • Task 2: Event Extraction over chemical reactions involves event trigger detection and argument recognition relating entities involved in a chemical reaction.

Task description • Task 1: Named Entity Recognition. In general, a chemical reaction is a process leading to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another. Task 1 requires identifying the chemical compounds and their specific types, i.e., to assign the label of a chemical compound according to the role which it plays within a chemical reaction. In addition to chemical compounds, this task also requires the identification of the temperatures and reaction times at which the chemical reaction is carried out, as well as yields obtained for the final chemical product and the label of the reaction. • Task 2: Event Extraction. A chemical reaction leading to an end product often consists of a sequence of individual event steps. Task 2 requires to identity these steps which involve chemical entities recognized from Task 1. Specifically, Task 2 requires identification of event trigger words and then determination of the chemical entity arguments of these events.

Publications and workshop As in previous CLEF labs, there will be an evaluation workshop allocated at CLEF 2020 where participating teams can present their systems and results. Moreover, participating teams will be invited to submit their system description papers for publication at the CLEF 2020 Working Notes proceedings. For previous working notes see: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2125/
