The Answer Validation Exercise (AVE) 2007 is part of the QA Track at the Cross Language Evaluation Forum (CLEF). The objective of the task is to promote the development and evaluation of subsystems aimed at validating the correctness of the answers given by a QA system. This year the exercise introduces some variations with respect to AVE 2006. Participant systems will receive a set of triplets (Question, Answer, Supporting Text) and they must return a validation value (SELECTED, ACCEPTED or REJECTED) for each triplet. Results will be evaluated against the QA human assessments. Please visit the "Exercise Description" at http://nlp.uned.es/QA/ave/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16&Itemid=29 for more details. There will be a subtask for each language involved in QA at CLEF 2007: Bulgarian, German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and Romanian The development collections for Answer Validation Exercise (AVE) 2007 are now available at the AVE site (http://nlp.uned.es/QA/ave/) under the "2007" tab of your menu, after login as a registered participant.
