*SEM 2012 shared task:
Resolving the Scope and Focus of Negation
Every *SEM edition will include a shared task in which training and test data are provided by the organizers, which allows participating systems to be evaluated and compared in a systematic way. Descriptions of the participating systems and an evaluation of their performance will be presented both at the conference and in the proceedings. The same or similar shared tasks may be chosen for several years in a row to focus the research attention of the community on a particular semantic task.
For *SEM 2012, we will be hosting a shared task on Resolving the Scope and Focus of Negation. Please refer to http://www.clips.ua.ac.be/sem2012-st-neg/ for more information.
