PAN shared task on Gender Identification in Russian texts (RusProfiling) http://en.rusprofilinglab.ru/rusprofiling-at-pan/
held in conjunction with the FIRE 2017 Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation
8th — 10th December 2017, Bangalore
Author profiling consists of predicting an author’s demographics from his/her writing, with gender identification being the most popular task. Slavic languages, however, are less investigated from author profiling standpoint and have never been presented at PAN.
This year we introduce a PAN shared task on Cross-genre Gender Identification in Russian texts where we will provide as training dataset tweets and as test dataset tweets, Facebook posts, as well as reviews, texts describing images, or letters to a friend.
We cordially invite all researchers and practitioners from all fields to participate in this year’s PAN @ FIRE shared task.
