CoNLL Shared Task 2019
ÚFAL and LINDAT/CLARIN announce the Cross-Framework Meaning Representation Parsing CoNLL Shared Task (MRP 2019).
The goal of the task is to advance data-driven parsing into graph-structured representations of sentence meaning. Please see http://mrp.nlpl.eu/ for details, schedule, and data.
A new volume reflects the author’s research in four main domains: (i) the specification of the underlying dependency sentence structure, (ii) topic-focus articulation, (iii) building of an annotated corpus of Czech, and (iv) the notion of the hiearachy of knowledge elements shared by the speaker and the hearer.
