Japanese subtasks (JA)

  • BC
  • MC
  • ExamBC
  • ExamSearch
  • UnitTest

Simplified Chinese subtasks (CS)

Dataset Number of Pairs ID Range
BC 781 pairs id 1~781
MC 781 pairs id 1~781
RITE4QA 2511 pairs id 1~7724, not continuous Configurations of RITE4QA submissions should correspond to BC system configurations
ExtraBC 1387 pairs id 1~1894, not continuous BC Participants should also submit the result of this dataset. Configurations of ExtraBC submissions should correspond to BC system configurations.
ExtraMC 1387 pairs id 1~1894, not continuous MC Participants should also submit the result of this dataset. Configurations of ExtraMC submissions should correspond to MC system configurations.
OptionalRITE4QA 5256 pairs id 21~7767, not continuous Considering RITE4QA participants may not have enough time to do all RITE4QA pairs, we set out low QA score pairs to make this optional RITE4QA dataset. Participants can decide if they want to submit results for this dataset. Configurations of OptionalRITE4QA submissions should correspond to BC system configurations.

Number of submissions

For each test dataset, you can submit up to three runs.

Data Format

In terms of the data format for the formal run, please carefully read Submission Format, and check the format of your result files using Evaluation Tool. Note that your submission is rejected if your submitted file is not accepted by the evaluation tool.

Attention

Please stop developing your system after distributing the formal run data. (a minimal modification related to I/O or a bug fix are allowed.) Especially, please do not develop resources by hand after looking into the formal run data. The following are some cases judged as manual intervention or not manual intervention.

  • manual intervention
    • creation of inference rules from sentences in the formal run data by hand
    • use of crowd sourcing platforms such as Mechanical Turk, use of Yahoo Answer to develop inference rules or entailment pairs of words
  • not manual intervention
    • automatically preprocessing sentences in the formal run data using linguistic analyzers
    • automatically expanding the meaning of words in sentences in the formal run data from the Web

Please mail to the RITE-2 mailing list (ntcir10-rite2 at googlegroups.com) if you have any question about this point.

When making formal run results of a subtask, please do not use the dataset of the other subtasks. For example, in making the formal run of Exam Search, using the formal run data of Exam BC is prohibited.

How to upload the results for the formal run

You can upload the results for the formal run from the following site (EasyChair). The system description paper will be also submitted from this site. All of the results for the formal run tasks you participated should be uploaded together.

formal run submission page:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ntcir10rite2

In RITE-2, we decided to use EasyChair for submitting both formal run results and system description papers. When submitting formal run results, please specify the zipped result file in the part “PDF”. For submitting your formal run results, please carefully read How to submit your formal run results and How to re-submit your formal run results. Please mail to the RITE-2 mailing list (ntcir10-rite2 at googlegroups.com) if you have any questions.

Making formal run data for submission

You can submit up to three runs for each subtask. Please zip all of the results together with a system description. The filename of your formal run data should be RITE2-(TeamID)-(Lang)-(SubtaskName)-(RunNumber).txt.

  • TeamID: your team ID (e.g. TOHOK)
  • Lang: the language of the subtask (JA, CS or CT)
  • SubtaskName: the subtask name (e.g. BC)
  • RunNumber: 01, 02 or 03

Let us consider a case where TeamID is TOHOK and participating tasks are JA-BC and JA-ExamBC. Then the files you should prepare are as follows.

+--TOHOK
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-description.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-BC-01.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-BC-02.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-BC-03.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamBC-01.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamBC-02.txt
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamBC-03.txt

After zipping all of the files as TOHOK.zip, please send the zipped file from the EasyChair site. For more details, see submit your results or re-submit your results. In the ExamSearch subtask, if you intend to submit the search results of t1, please set the filename as RITE2-(TeamID)-(Lang)-(SubtaskName)-(RunNumber)-ID.txt. For example, if you send three runs together with their search results of t1, then the files will be as follows.

+--TOHOK	 
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-description.txt	 
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamSearch-01.txt	 
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamSearch-01-ID.txt	 
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamSearch-02.txt

|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamSearch-03.txt	 
|  +--RITE2-TOHOK-JA-ExamSearch-03-ID.txt

In the description file, please write detailed description of your system used in the runs for each subtasks you participated. The description must follow the template. The information you wrote will be used to write the RITE-2 overview paper.

More precisely, for each question, only applicable items should be left.

TOHOK-JA-BC-01
system: Extracted a set of morphemes from t1 and t2, and decide on the label based on the percentage of overlap between the sets of morphemes.
questionnaire:
1. what approach your system can be categorized into?
* statistical (e.g. machine learning)

2. fundamental approach of your system (you can choose more than one) 
* overlap
