This is the 2nd call for systems for the SemTab 2020 Semantic Web Challenge
on Tabular Data to Knowledge Graph Matching collocated with the
International Semantic Web Conference:
http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/isg/challenges/sem-tab/

Tabular data to Knowledge Graph (KG) matching is the process of assigning
semantic tags from Knowledge Graphs (e.g., Wikidata) to the elements of the
table. This task however is often difficult in practice due to metadata
(e.g., table and column names) being missing, incomplete or ambiguous.

This challenge aims at benchmarking systems dealing with the tabular data
to KG matching problem, so as to facilitate their comparison on the same
basis and the reproducibility of the results.


Datasets
----------------------

Round 1 is already open. Unlike in SemTab 2019, the target Knowledge Graph
in SemTab 2020 is Wikidata.


Challenge Tasks
----------------------
The challenge includes the following tasks organised into several
evaluation rounds:

    - Assigning a semantic type (e.g., a KG class) to a column: CTA task.
    - Matching a cell to a KG entity: CEA task.
    - Assigning a KG property to the relationship between two columns: CPA
task

The challenge will be run with the support of the AICrowd platform:

Discussion group
----------------------
We have a discussion group for the challenge where we share the latest news
with the participants and we discuss issues risen during the evaluation
rounds:
