Dear all,

We are very happy to announce QALD-4, the fourth in a series of
evaluation campaigns on multilingual question answering over linked

question answering.

In the context of the question answering lab at CLEF 2014
(, we offer three open challenges:

     Task 1: Multilingual question answering over DBpedia
     Task 2: Biomedical question answering over interlinked data
     Task 3: Hybrid question answering

All relevant information about training and test phase as well as the
lab can be found on our website:

The training phase starts now, and the further schedule is as follows:

Submission deadline:  May 1, 2014
Release of results:   May 8, 2014
