Call for Shared Task Participation
SemEval 2016 Task 1: Semantic Textual Similarity (STS)

Semantic Textual Similarity (STS) measures the degree of equivalence in the underlying semantics of paired snippets of text. While making such an assessment is trivial for humans, constructing algorithms and computational models that mimic human level performance represents a difficult and deep natural language understanding (NLU) problem.
