SHARED TASK DESCRIPTION

This shared task proposes data to experiment on causality detection, and focuses on determining causality associated to an event or to transformations of financial objects.
The data are extracted from a corpus of 2019 financial news provided by QWAM http://www.qwamci.com/.
______________________________________________________________________

SUBTASKS

The task contains two subtasks:
a) Sentence classification
This task is a binary classification task. The goal of this subtask is to filter sentences which display causal meanings (1) from the sentences that are noise in regard of causality (0)
b) Cause – effect detection
This task is a relation extraction task. The aim is to identify, in a text block defined as causal (causal sentence or paragraph), the substring displaying the cause and the substring describing the effect.

______________________________________________________________________

DATASET
Two datasets, one for each sub-task, will be released as csv files in three parts each: trial set, training set and test set.
