A shared task on Sarcasm Detection

As part of the FigLang 2020 workshop, we are organizing a shared task on 
sarcasm detection. Sarcasm detection has received considerable attention in the 
NLP community in recent years (Joshi, 2016). This current shared task aims to 
study the role of conversation context for sarcasm detection (Ghosh et al., 
2018). We will be using two different datasets: Twitter conversations and 
conversation threads from Reddit. For both datasets, we will provide the 
immediate context (i.e., only the previous dialogue turn) as well as the full 
dialogue thread, when available. The goal is to understand how much 
conversation context is needed or helpful for sarcasm detection.
