Dear colleagues,

We invite you to take part in the 1st Shared Task on Argument Retrieval, Touché, which will be held in conjunction with the CLEF'20 conference in Thessaloniki, Greece. We propose the following two tasks:

1. Conversational Argument Retrieval. The goal of Task 1 is to support users who search for arguments to be used conversations (e.g., getting an overview of pros and cons or just looking for arguments in line with a user's stance). Given a controversial topic, retrieve arguments from the provided dataset to support users who search for arguments directly, e.g., to support their stance, in conversational settings.

2. Comparative Argument Retrieval. The goal of Task 2 is to support users facing some choice problem from "everyday life". Given a comparative question, the task is to retrieve and rank documents from the ClueWeb12 that help to answer the comparative question. Given an argumentative comparative question, retrieve ranked documents from a general web crawl ClueWeb12 that helps to answer the question.
