Sixth Recognising Textual Entailment Challenge at the 2010 Text Analysis
Conference:

http://www.nist.gov/tac/2010/RTE/

Knowledge base population (KBP) validation pilot guidelines now available

The deadline for the Text Analysis Conference 2010 track registration is
May 21, although late submissions will be considered. Fore more
information, contact tac-managernist.gov.

The Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) task consists of developing a
system that, given two text fragments, can determine whether the meaning of
one text is entailed, i.e. can be inferred, from the other text.

Since its inception in 2005, RTE has enjoyed a constantly growing
popularity in the NLP community. After the first three highly successful
PASCAL RTE Challenges campaigns held in Europe, in 2008 RTE became a track
at the Text Analysis Conference (TAC), bringing it together with
communities working on NLP applications. The interaction has provided the
opportunity to apply RTE to specific application settings and move it
towards more realistic scenarios. In particular, the RTE-5 Pilot Search
Task represented a step forward, as for the first time textual entailment
recognition was performed on a corpus, instead of isolated H-T pairs, and
on a real NLP application, namely Summarization.

Organizations interested in participating in the RTE-6 Challenge are
invited to submit a track registration form by May 21, 2010, at the TAC
2010 web site:
