RTE-5: Call for Participation



Since 2004 RTE Challenges have promoted research in textual entailment
recognition as a task that captures major semantic inference needs across
many natural language processing applications, such as Question Answering
(QA), Information Retrieval (IR), Information Extraction (IE), and
multi-document summarization. Over the years the encouraging progresses,
both in term of number of researchers involved and results achieved, have
spurred to further investigate the phenomena involved by innovating the
challenge every year and moving it to more realistic scenarios.

Capitalizing on the very good response obtained so far, the RTE Organizing
Committee is glad to launch the Fifth Recognizing Textual Entailment
Challenge, proposed for the second year as a track of Textual Analysis

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

2009 LINGUIST List Restaurant and join us for a delightful treat!

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
