Shared Task Description:
Tha Causality Detection task focuses on detecting if an object, an event or a chain of events is considered a cause for a prior event. This shared task's target is to determine whether a causality is associated with a quantified fact. An event is defined as the arising or emergence of a new object or context in regard to a previous situation. So the task will emphasize the detection of causality associated with transformation of financial objects embedded in quantified facts.
