Fifth Open Challenge on Question Answering over Linked Data

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce QALD-5, the fifth instalment of the open 
challenge on question answering over linked data. QALD-5 is part of the 
QA lab at CLEF 2015 (http://nlp.uned.es/clef-qa/) and puts a strong 
focus on multilinguality as well as on hybrid approaches using 
information from both structured and unstructured data.

The challenge is aimed at all systems that mediate between a user, 
expressing his or her information need in natural language (either as 
question or keywords, provided in seven languages: English, Spanish, 
Italian, French, German, Dutch, Romanian), and RDF data (in this case, 
DBpedia 3.10).

A full description of the challenge as well as the training data can be 
found at the following location:



Training phase starts now, the further schedule is as follows:

Release of test data: April 20, 2015
Submission deadline:  May 8, 2015

data to participate, and look forward to another exciting challenge!
