Abstract

The News track focuses on information retrieval in the service of help- ing people read the news. In 2018, in cooperation with the Washington Post1, we released a new collection of nearly 600,000 news articles, and crafted two tasks related to how news is presented on the web: background linking and entity ranking. For 2020, we added more documents to the collection and retired the entity ranking task in favor of a new wikification task.
