We are pleased to announce the following exciting tasks in SemEval-2016.

Due to the high number of tasks we have organized them into tracks. The tracks make explicit the connection between related tasks, and should make it easier for organizers to synchronize their task descriptions, datasets evaluation measures, and evauation setups, so that it is easier for participants to participate in more than one task from the same track.


Track I. Textual Similarity and Question Answering Track

Track II. Sentiment Analysis Track

III. Semantic Parsing Track

IV. Semantic Analysis Track

V. Semantic Taxonomy Track
