Text Analysis Conference

The Text Analysis Conference (TAC) is a series of evaluation workshops organized to encourage research in Natural Language Processing and related applications, by providing a large test collection, common evaluation procedures, and a forum for organizations to share their results. TAC comprises sets of tasks known as "tracks," each of which focuses on a particular subproblem of NLP. TAC tracks focus on end-user tasks, but also include component evaluations situated within the context of end-user tasks.

TAC currently hosts evaluations and workshops in two areas of research:

  1. Knowledge Base Population (KBP)
    TAC Workshop: November 17-18, 2014 (Gaithersburg, MD, USA)
    The goal of Knowledge Base Population is to promote research in automated systems that discover information about named entities as found in a large corpus and incorporate this information into a knowledge base.

  2. Summarization
    The TAC Summarization track will focus on summarization of scientific literature. Details TBA.
