CLEF-2019 FACT CHECKING LAB: Call for Participation https://sites.google.com/view/clef2019-checkthat/
Call for Participation:
We invite you to take part in our shared task on the identification and verification of claims in political debates. Two tasks, available in English and Arabic, are included:
Task 1: Check-Worthiness. Predict which claim in a text should be prioritized for fact-checking. In particular, given a debate, the goal is to produce a ranked list of its sentences based on their worthiness for fact checking. This task will run inEnglish.
Task 2: Factuality and Evidence.
Identify which of an input set of Web pages (and passages of those Web pages) can be useful in assisting a human in fact-checking a claim. In particular, given a claim associated with a set of Web pages potentially relevant to the claim, classify and rank the pages based on usefulness for fact-checking, determine which passage of those pages were actually useful, and finally, determine the claim factuality. This task will run in Arabic.
Our lab is held in conjunction with CLEF 2019 in Lugano, Switzerland.
