Overview of the IGGSA 2016 Shared Task on Source and Target Extraction from Political Speeches

  • We present the second iteration of IGGSA’s Shared Task on Sentiment Analysis for German. It resumes the STEPS task of IGGSA’s 2014 evaluation campaign: Source, Subjective Expression and Target Extraction from Political Speeches. As before, the task is focused on fine-grained sentiment analysis, extracting sources and targets with their associated subjective expressions from a corpus of speeches given in the Swiss parliament. The second iteration exhibits some differences, however; mainly the use of an adjudicated gold standard and the availability of training data. The shared task had 2 participants submitting 7 runs for the full task and 3 runs for each of the subtasks. We evaluate the results and compare them to the baselines provided by the previous iteration. The shared task homepage can be found at http://iggsasharedtask2016.github.io/.
