Subject: SemEval-2017 Task 3 Challenge: Community Question

 The challenge concerns the development of systems for the automatic selection
of questions and answers in cQA ecosystems. It involves the development of
ranking models: given (i) a new question and (ii) a large collection of
previously-asked questions and comment threads, created by a user community,
the goal is to rank questions and comments from these threads in order of
usefulness for answering the new question.
