Workshop Date: November 13, 2023

The Text Analysis Conference (TAC) is an evaluation workshop series for natural language processing (NLP) tasks hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The workshop's goal is to encourage research in NLP by providing large test collections, uniform scoring procedures, and a forum for organizations interested in comparing their results.  This year, TAC tracks include Claim Relation Understanding and Extraction, Plain Language Adaptation of Biomedical Abstracts, and Recognizing Ultra Fine-grained Entities.  The TAC 2023 workshop will be used as a forum for presentation and discussion of TAC tracks and related topics.  The workshop will be held on November 13, 2023, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, with an option to attend virtually.

More information about the TAC program can be found on the TAC webpage.

Who should attend the workshop? 
Attendance is strongly encouraged for all TAC track participants. Other researchers and stakeholders are encouraged to attend by contacting the TAC organizer, hoa.dang [at] (hoa[dot]dang[at]nist[dot]gov), prior to registration.
