*** Second Shared Task on Automatic Minuting ***
*** AutoMin 2023 as INLG Challenge ***

Automatic summarization of meetings into meeting minutes (aka
`minuting') would be an amazing tool. Superficially, large language
models like BART, GPT* and friends may seem to have solved it already,
but serious concerns still remain regarding completeness and factual

We would like invite you to take part in AutoMin 2023, the second
instance of the shared on automatic minuting, i.e. summarization of
English and Czech meeting transcripts into meeting minutes and their
evaluation. See the details on task options below.

AutoMin 2023 is a registered INLG Challenge this year.

*** Key Tasks (one or both) ***

- Task A: The main task consists of automatically creating minutes
from multiparty meeting transcripts. The generated minute will be
evaluated both via automatic and manual metrics.

- Task D: Given a meeting transcript, a candidate minutes, and a set of
one or more reference minutes, assign a score indicating the quality
of the candidate. Task D will not be evaluated by a single criterion.
All submissions to Task D will be evaluated in terms of Pearson
correlation against all manual and all automatic evaluation scores
available in AutoMin 2023, including other submissions to Task D.
