We would like to again thank everybody who participated in the SemEval-2017 Semantic Textual Similarity (STS) shared task. This year’s shared task was particularly challenging and we are excited to have received system submissions from over 30 teams!
With the paper deadline approaching, we’d like to freeze the results table. If you haven’t already, please follow the instructions we sent out last week in the thread titled “Semeval task 1 - Codalab URGENT action requested” and mark your CodaLab results as public.
If you want your system included in the final results for the task, please mark your results as public no later than sometime this coming Friday, Feb 17th.
Everyone is highly encouraged to submit a system description paper to the SemEval workshop. The submission deadline is Monday Feb 27th, which is only two weeks away!
Detailed instructions for the papers can be found here: http://alt.qcri.org/semeval2017/index.php?id=papers
Pay particular attention to the 4 page limit and the correct template for paper titles which should be: "[SystemName] at SemEval-2017 Task [TaskNumber]: [Insert Paper Title Here]”.
After peer-review, we’ll shepherd papers that are on the edge of being accepted. This means we’ll try to work with authors so that they can make the necessary changes for their paper to be accepted. From experience in shepherding papers during prior years, I would encourage anyone struggling with their paper to focus most of your energy into clearly and concisely describing your system and any models it uses. It is also very useful to describe the experiments you ran to motivate various design choices.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you all in Vancouver this summer!
