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.


Participants should fill the registration short form to register to FinCausal.
Registration will result in subscription to the task's mailing list.
Participants submitting results commit themselves to writing a short system paper to be published in ACL proceedings.
