Workshop at ACL 2018
Date: Thursday, July 19, 2018
Machine Reading for Question Answering (MRQA) has become an important testbed for evaluating how well computer systems understand human language, as well as a crucial technology for industry applications such as search engines and dialog systems. The research community has recently created a multitude of large-scale datasets over text sources such as Wikipedia (WikiReading, SQuAD, WikiHop), news and other articles (CNN/Daily Mail, NewsQA, RACE), fictional stories (MCTest, CBT, NarrativeQA), and general web sources (MS MARCO, TriviaQA, SearchQA). These new datasets have in turn inspired an even wider array of new question answering systems.
This workshop will gather researchers to address and discuss important research topics surrounding MRQA, including:
All submission deadlines are 11:59 PM GMT -12 (anywhere in the world).
