Call for Participation: SemEval 2019 Task 6 – OffensEval: Identifying and Categorizing Offensive Language in Social Media

Call for Participation

SemEval 2019 Task 6 – OffensEval: Identifying and Categorizing Offensive Language in Social Media
Shared Task Website: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/20011

Offensive language is pervasive in social media. Online communities, social media platforms, and technology companies have been investing heavily in ways to cope with offensive language to prevent abusive behavior in social media. One of the most effective strategies for tackling this problem is to use computational methods to identify offense, aggression, and hate speech in user-generated content (e.g. posts, comments, microblogs, etc.).

The 17th Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies (NAACL-HLT 2019) will be held in Minneapolis from June 2nd to June 7th, 2019. NAACL-HLT 2019 aims to bring together researchers interested in the design and study of natural language processing technology as well as its applications to new problem areas. With this goal in mind, NAACL-HLT 2019 invites the submission of long and short papers on creative, substantial and unpublished research in all aspects of computational linguistics.

NAACL-HLT 2019 has a goal of a diverse technical program–in addition to traditional research results, papers may present negative findings, survey an area, announce the creation of a new resource, argue a position, report novel linguistic insights derived using existing techniques, and reproduce, or fail to reproduce, previous results.
