------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The key challenge for Question Answering over Linked Data is to translate a user’s
information need into a form such that it can be evaluated using standard
Semantic Web query processing and inferencing techniques.

The main task of QALD therefore is the following:
Given one or several RDF dataset(s) as well as additional knowledge sources and natural
language questions or keywords, return the correct answers or a SPARQL query that
retrieves these answers.

This year, the challenge comprises the following tasks:
-Task 1: Multilingual question answering over DBpedia
-Task 2: Hybrid question answering
-Task 3: Large-Scale Question answering over RDF
-Task 4: English question answering over Wikidata

We expect participants to describe their approach over a 5 page paper,
including advantages and disadvantages as well as a first evaluation of the system
with the respective task training data or an in-depth analysis of errors.
