Call For Papers

The past years have seen a growing amount of research on question answering over Semantic Web data, shaping an interaction paradigm that allows end users to profit from the expressive power of Semantic Web standards while at the same time hiding their complexity behind an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.

We are happy to announce QALD-6 @ ESWC 2016, the sixth installment of the open challenge on question answering over linked data, which provides an up-to-date benchmark for assessing and comparing systems that mediate between a user, expressing his or her information need in natural language and RDF data. QALD-6 offers three tasks:

* Multilingual question answering over RDF data
* Hybrid question answering over RDF and free text data
* Statistical question answering over RDF data cubes

A full description of the challenge as well as the training data can be found at the following location:

We cordially invite everyone working on question answering over linked data, natural language processing for question answering, multilingual information retrieval, or related topics to participate, and look forward to another exciting challenge!
