The deadline to register for the OpenCLIR19 evaluation has been extended to November 30, 2018! Please see below for the original announcement.

Dear HLT community,

IARPA and NIST are pleased to announce a new machine translation challenge: OpenCLIR 2019.

The goal of the OpenCLIR (Open Cross Language Information Retrieval) evaluation is to develop methods to locate text and speech content in a variety of genres from low-resource languages, using English queries.

The OpenCLIR challenge was developed out of IARPA's MATERIAL program, but incorporates a simpler, smaller scale evaluation.

For more information on the OpenCLIR timeline and participation details, as well as a link to registration, please refer to the OpenCLIR webpage:

All NLP practitioners are eligible to participate. Feel free to spread the word to interested participants!

Please email for any questions or comments regarding the OpenCLIR evaluation.
