  Call For Papers: QALD 2017 - 7th Question Answering over Linked Data 
Challenge
            https://project-hobbit.eu/challenges/qald2017/
    In conjunction with the 14th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 
2017)
                 http://2017.eswc-conferences.org/

The key challenge for Question Answering over Linked Data is to
translate a user’s information need into a form such that it can be
evaluated using standard Semantic Web query processing and inferencing
techniques.

The main task of QALD therefore is the following: Given one or several
RDF dataset(s) as well as additional knowledge sources and natural
language questions or keywords, return the correct answers or a SPARQL
query that retrieves these answers.

This year, the challenge comprises the following tasks:
-Task 1: Multilingual question answering over DBpedia
-Task 2: Hybrid question answering
-Task 3: Large-Scale Question answering over RDF
-Task 4: English question answering over Wikidata

We expect participants to describe their approach over a 5 page paper,
including advantages and disadvantages as well as a first evaluation
of the system with the respective task training data or an in-depth
analysis of errors.
