BARR 2017

(BARR) track
The proposed Biomedical Abbreviation Recognition and Resolution (BARR) track - 2017 has the aim to promote the development and evaluation of biomedical abbreviation identification systems by providing Gold Standard training, development and test corpora manually annotated by domain experts with abbreviation-definition pairs within abstracts of biomedical documents written in Spanish.

BARR track asks participating teams to test processing text systems that are able to detect explicit occurrences of abbreviation-definition pairs.
