Touché @ CLEF: Argument Retrieval


Decision making processes, be it at the societal or at the personal level, often come to a point where one side challenges the other with a why-question, which is a prompt to justify some stance based on arguments. Since technologies for argument mining are maturing at a rapid pace, also ad-hoc argument retrieval becomes a feasible task in reach. We invite you to participate in the third Touché lab on argument retrieval at CLEF 2022 featuring three tasks [overview paper] (Details on Touché 2020 can be found in the overview paper or on the lab web page; details on Touché 2021 can be found in the overview paper or on the lab web page).
