Meeting Description:

We are preparing a cross-lingual (Spanish, Portuguese, and English), which was only in English in previous events we organized, a socio-political event information classification and extraction task. Moreover, we are preparing two additional data challenges about protests pertaining to BlackLivesMatter and COVID19. These challenges will be about automatically replicating the spatiotemporal distribution of a manually curated events list. Common Crawl News will be exploited as a data source. Moreover, a Twitter dataset will be shared with the participants as well.

A Codalab page will be set up for each task. Participating teams will be required to submit a report, which will be peer-reviewed, describing the methods and results they ran on the data. We encourage submissions of the system papers on our available benchmarks (ProtestNews CLEF 2020 and AESPEN LREC 2020). Please find details of these datasets and shared tasks on Hürriyetoğlu et al. (2019, 2020a, and 2020b).

Please send an e-mail to ahurriyetogluku.edu.tr if you would like to participate in any of the shared tasks.
