The BioASQ challenge consists of three different tasks (Task 5a, Task 5b and the NEWLY INTRODUCED Task 5c).

If you are interested in any of the following areas:
* Large-scale and hierarchical classification
* Machine learning
* Semantic Indexing, semantic similarity

then you may want to participate in BioASQ Task 5a (large-scale biomedical semantic indexing).
More information at http://bioasq.org/participate/challenges#Task5a

If you are interested in any of the following areas:
* Question answering from unstructured and structured data
* Single and multi-document summarization
* Information retrieval and passage retrieval
* Semantic indexing, semantic similarity and reasoning
* Machine learning, classification, learning to rank
* Named-entity recognition and disambiguation
* Information extraction, fact checking, relation extraction
* Textual entailment
* Natural-language generation

then you may want to participate in BioASQ Task 5b (biomedical semantic QA).
More information at http://bioasq.org/participate/challenges#Task5b

If you are interested in any of the following areas:
* Information retrieval
* Named-entity recognition and disambiguation
* Machine learning, classification, learning to rank
* Information extraction

then you may want to participate in the NEW BioASQ Task 5c (Funding Information Extraction From Biomedical Literature).
More information at http://bioasq.org/participate/challenges#Task5c

Important dates:
* Task 5a: You can join anytime from February 06, 2017 onwards. New data sets will be released weekly.
