GermEval is a series of shared task evaluation campaigns that focus on Natural Language Processing for the German language. So far, there have been four iterations of GermEval, each with a different type of task (see table below). GermEval shared tasks have been run informally by self-organized groups of interested researchers. However, the last shared tasks were endorsed by special interest groups within the German Society for Computational Linguistics (GSCL). All iterations of GermEval shared tasks held their concluding workshop in conjunction with either the GSCL or the KONVENS bi-annual conferences, depending on which of them took place.
