Meeting Description:

PAN is a series of scientific events and shared tasks on digital text
forensics.

PAN will be held as part of the CLEF conference in Dublin, Ireland, on
September 11-14, 2017 (see http://clef2017.clef-initiative.eu/).

PAN hosts a growing collection of software developed by previous participants

Call for Participation

We invite you to take part in one of the following shared tasks:

1. Author Identification -- Given a document, who wrote it?

This task focuses on author clustering and style breach detection. Author
clustering will be done on short documents of paragraph length. Style breach
detection has the goal of identifying breaches of writing style in longer
texts.

2. Author Profiling -- Given a document, what're its author's traits?

This task focuses on gender and language variety identification on Twitter,
providing a corpus of tweets annotated with gender and native language of
their respective authors.

3. Author Obfuscation -- Given a document, hide its author.

This task works against identification and profiling by automatically
paraphrasing a text to obfuscate its author's style. The tasks offered are
author masking and obfuscation evaluation.
