qald-contact at googlegroups.com

May 28th to June 1st 2017, Portoroz, Slovenia

in conjunction with the 14th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2017)
http://2017.eswc-conferences.org/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The key challenge for Question Answering over Linked Data is to 
translate a user’s
information need into a form such that it can be evaluated using standard
Semantic Web query processing and inferencing techniques.

The main task of QALD therefore is the following:
Given one or several RDF dataset(s) as well as additional knowledge 
sources and natural
language questions or keywords, return the correct answers or a SPARQL 
query that
retrieves these answers.

This year, the challenge comprises the following tasks:
-Task 1: Multilingual question answering over DBpedia
-Task 2: Hybrid question answering
-Task 3: Large-Scale Question answering over RDF
-Task 4: English question answering over Wikidata

We expect participants to describe their approach over a 5 page paper,
including advantages and disadvantages as well as a first evaluation of 
the system
with the respective task training data or an in-depth analysis of errors.
