Best Task Paper Award

The Best Task Paper award, for organizers of an individual shared task, recognizes a task that stands out for making an important intellectual contribution to empirical computational semantics, as demonstrated by a creative, interesting, and scientifically rigorous dataset and evaluation design, and a well-written task overview paper.
