SQA 2018 - Scalable Question Answering

3rd-7th June 2018, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
in conjunction with the 15th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2018)
https://2018.eswc-conferences.org/
https://project-hobbit.eu/open-challenges/sqa-challenge-eswc-2018/

The key challenge for Scalable Question Answering over Linked Data is the need to translate a user’s information request into such a form that it can be efficiently evaluated using standard Semantic Web query processing and inferencing techniques.
Therefore, the main task of SQA Challenge is the following: given an RDF dataset and and a large volume of natural language questions or keywords, return the correct answers (or SPARQL queries that retrieves those answers).

Training dataset and documentation are available:
* Training dataset: https://figshare.com/articles/LC-QuAD_QALDformat/5818452
* Description: http://hobbitdata.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/SQAOC/Documentation.txt
In the Scalable Question Answering Challenge (SQA) users can display the capabilities of their systems using the HOBBIT platform (https://project-hobbit.eu/outcomes/hobbit-platform) provided by the homonymous H2020 project.
Participants will be expected to describe their solution and results on the training datasets over a 5 page paper. In particular, a short summary of the approach chosen, a link to the experimental results and an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the approach are expected.
