SemEval 2019 – OffensEval: Identifying and categorizing offensive language in social media

SemEval is an international framework for shared tasks in natural language processing [1] (more details about the tasks will be available soon). Training and test data will be provided by the task organizers. We want to build a state-of-the-art system to participate in this competition. In addition, we want to use cognitive signals, such as eye-tracking and EEG recordings [2], to improve this system.
