PAN 2020 is now live!

PAN at CLEF 2012

This is the 7th evaluation lab on uncovering plagiarism, authorship, and social software misuse. PAN will be held as part of the CLEF conference in Rome, Italy, on September 17-20, 2012. Evaluations will commence from January till June. We invite you to take part in any of the three tasks shown below.

Author Identification

Given a document, who wrote it?

This task is divided into authorship attribution and sexual predator identification. For the former, we consider open/closed class situations for attribution as well as author clustering and intrinsic plagiarism. For the latter, the goal is to identify sexual predators in chat logs.

Wikipedia Quality Flaw Prediction

Given a Wikipedia article, what're its quality flaws?

This task is concerned with predicting the ten most frequent quality flaws of English Wikipedia articles, such as "citation needed", orphan, or advert.

Plagiarism Detection

Given a document, is it an original?

This task is divided into source retrieval and text alignment. Source retrieval is about searching for likely sources of a suspicious document. Text alignment is about matching passages of reused text between a pair of documents..
