[Apologies for cross-postings]

QAST (Question Answering on Speech Transcripts) is a CLEF track
providing a framework in which QA systems can be evaluated when the
answers have to be extracted from speech transcriptions (manual and
automatic transcriptions).

Three QAST evaluation campaigns have already been carried out in 2007,
2008 and 2009 (

To help us identify a list of potential participants for QAST 2010, we
would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill this
(very short) on-line questionnaire: 

You are welcome to answer the questionnaire even if you are not
willing to (or cannot) participate next year. We would be happy to
have your opinion on this task in any case.

Feel free to forward this email to whoever might be interested in QAST. 
We will collect answers until the end of next week.
