Cantemist (CANcer TExt Mining Shared Task) will be part of the IberLEF (Iberian Languages Evaluation Forum) 2020 evaluation campaign at the SEPLN 2020

36th Annual SEPLN Congress (September 23rd to 25th 2020, Málaga)

IberLEF aims to foster the research community to define new challenges and obtain cutting-edge results for the Natural Language Processing community, involving at least one of the Iberian languages: Spanish, Portugueses, Catalan, Basque or Galician. Accordingly, several shared-tasks challenges are proposed.
