TAC KBP 2014 Track Registration Instructions

  1. Read the Policies and Guidelines for Track Participants. Participation in a TAC track signifies that you have read and will abide by the policies and guidelines. All results submitted to TAC are archived on the TAC web site and all evaluations are published in the conference proceedings. Dissemination of TAC work and results other than in the conference proceedings is welcomed, but the conditions of participation specifically preclude any advertising claims based on TAC results.

  2. Register for TAC KBP 2014 tracks at: http://tac.nist.gov/2014/KBP/KBP-track-app.html

  3. Subscribe yourself to the tac-kbp mailing list (if not already subscribed): tac-kbp@nist.gov. Registering to participate in a track does not automatically add you to the mailing list. If you were previously subscribed to the mailing list, you do not have to re-subscribe (the mailing list is for anyone interested in TAC KBP, rather than specifically for TAC KBP participants, and thus carries over from year to year). To subscribe, send a message to listproc@email.nist.gov such that the body consists of the line:
                subscribe tac-kbp <FirstName> <LastName>
    You will receive an automatic confirmation email if your request was successful. In order for your messages to get posted to the list, you must send them from the email address used when you subscribed to the list. To unsubscribe, send a message from the subscribed email address to listproc@email.nist.gov such that the body consists of the line:
                unsubscribe tac-kbp
    Because the tac-kbp mailing list is intended as a forum for discussion about KBP, if you "Reply" to a message sent through the mailing list the default is that the reply will be sent to everyone on the list; please check recipient addresses before sending replies to confirm that you are sending the message to its intended recipient(s). For additional information on how to use mailing lists hosted at NIST, send a message to listproc@email.nist.gov such that the body consists of the line:
