Pilot Task

Participants will be asked to process a corpus of social media texts running the same systems and following the same guidelines of the Main Task.
No training data will be provided for the Pilot Task, as the results obtained will be used to analyze how well systems built for standard language perform on social media texts.
In addition to this, participants can build a new system or adapt an already existing one using any freely available training data.
