  "abstract": "<p><strong>Task</strong></p>\n\n<p>Authorship verification is the task of deciding whether two texts have been written by the same author based on comparing the texts&#39; writing styles.</p>\n\n<p>In the coming three years at PAN&nbsp;2020 to PAN&nbsp;2022, we develop a new experimental setup that addresses three key questions in authorship verification that have not been studied at scale to date:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>Year 1 (PAN 2020): Closed-set verficiation.<br>\n\tGiven a large training dataset comprising of known authors who have written about a given set of topics, the test dataset contains verification cases from a subset of the authors and topics found in the training data.</p>\n\t</li>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>Year 2 (PAN 2021): Open-set verification.<br>\n\tGiven the training dataset of Year&nbsp;1, the test dataset contains verification cases from previously unseen authors and topics.</p>\n\t</li>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>Year 3 (PAN 2022):&nbsp;<em>Suprise task</em>.<br>\n\tThe task of the last year of this evaluation cycle (to be announced at a later time) will be designed with an eye on realism and practical application.</p>\n\t</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>This evaluation cycle on authorship verification provides for a renewed challenge of increasing difficulty within a large-scale evaluation. We invite you to plan ahead and participate in all three of these tasks.</p>\n\n<p>More information at:&nbsp;<a href=\"https://pan.webis.de/clef20/pan20-web/author-identification.html\">PAN @ CLEF 2020 - Authorship Verification</a></p>",
