SemEval-2023: Best Task, Best Paper!!

SemEval-2023 features two overall awards, one for organizers of a task and one for a team participating in a task.

We are very pleased to announce the winners of these awards for SemEval-2023!

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.

Best Task Paper: SemEval-2023 Task 10: Explainable Detection of Online Sexism
Hannah Kirk, Wenjie Yin, Bertie Vidgen, Paul Röttger

Honorable Mention: SemEval-2023 Task 5: Clickbait Spoiling

Best System Paper Award

The Best System Paper award, for task participants, recognizes a system description paper that advances our understanding of a problem and available solutions with respect to a task. It need not be the highest-scoring system in the task, but it must have a strong analysis component in the evaluation, as well as a clear and reproducible description of the problem, algorithms, and methodology.
