WSDM Cup 2017: Call for Participation

We invite you to take part in one of the following shared tasks:

Task 1.
Vandalism Detection -- Given a Wikidata revision, is it damaging?
This task is about detecting vandalism as well as all other kinds of damaging
edits to Wikidata. In doing so, not only Wikidata's integrity is protected, but
also that of all information systems making use of the knowledge base.

Task 2.
Triple Scoring -- Compute relevance scores for triples from type-like relations.
For example, the triple "Johnny_Depp profession Actor" should get a high score,
because acting is Depp's main profession, whereas "Quentin_Tarantino profession
Actor" should get a low score, because Tarantino is more of a director than an
actor. Such scores are a basic ingredient for ranking results in entity search.

Evaluation as a Service.

For the sake of reproducability, we ask you to submit your software instead of
just its run output. Software submissions allow for preserving your software
in working condition, and for re-evaluating it as new datasets appear.
To facilitate software submissions, we will make use of the cloud-based
evaluation platform TIRA (

Open Source Proceedings.

We encourage the open source release of your software. To maximize the impact
of your software, we collect it at a central repository on GitHub:
Private repositories can be assigned to you at request during the competition.

Benefits for early birds.

Submitting your software or your notebook early, as well as registering early
for the conference will be rewarded. Check out the specific benefits on
our web page at
