Abstract:

Growth in government investment, academic research, and commercial question answering QA systems is motivating a need for increased planning and coordination. The internationalization of QA research, and the need to move toward a common understanding of resources, tasks and evaluation methods provided motivate a need to facilitate more rapid and efficient progress. This paper characterizes a range of question answering systems and provides an initial roadmap for future research, including a list of existing resources and ones under development. This roadmap was initiated at the LREC 2002 Workshop on QA and we propose to update the roadmap during the workshop with moderated group brainstorming sessions.
