RTE-5: Call for Participation
FIFTH RECOGNIZING TEXTUAL ENTAILMENT CHALLENGE AT TAC 2009
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

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!
