Hi Davy,

I was also looking for the training dataset.
I registered to BioCreative'21 a while ago but not sure if I also registered to this task (Task 3).
But we definitely wanted to see if it'd be feasible for us to participate.
Could we get the training data please?

Thank you,
Hoo Chang

Dear Hoo Chang,

You were not registered to task 3. I added you and just sent the first batch of data by mail. Please, let me know by mail if you received correctly the data. Thanks for joining the competition.

Best regards,

Hi Davy
I have created my CodaLab account and registered in the competition also. May I know how a team is created? I just want to be a sub ordinate in a group, headed by a leader. I don't have any programming language skills. So, I want to learn from basics and help in the process under guidance of a team lead. May I know the due process?

Dear Saleha_7,

The public intended for this competition is academic or industrial professionals in the natural language processing field. The teams registered are already created. They are usually teams of researchers working in the same university/company or teams of students studying under the supervision of a professor. Unfortunately, during this competition, we do not provide any mechanism for new students to join an existing team.

I wish you all the best in your future study of the field,

Thanks sir for your kind and valuable information. I was searching for training which could leverage my potentials and broden horizons of my knowledge. Being a Biotechnology graduate student, it seems somewhat difficult for me to continue Bio creative workshop. As I am quite poor in programming, I need to work out on these skills for effective participation in the event. Since I have registered singly in the event, I will be forming the team alone. Depending on the instructions provided by event managers, I would level best try to persue the training. Anyways it was lovely being part of the prestigious event. Looking ahead in future to be a part of such organisation with sound domain expertise.
