The EventStory workshop will include a session at the end of the day to discuss a group annotation exercise. Based on the discussion of the exercise at the 2017 workshop (paper) and partially inspired by the goals of DARPA’s AIDA program (paper), this year our exercise will focus on conflicting storylines and the effects of varying viewpoints/sources.
A challenge to developing and maintaining an understanding of events is that users are often receiving information from many disparate sources, reflecting different genres, modalities, as well as different stances on and accounts of what are potentially the same events. We invite participants to consider...
Please consider these questions with respect to the sample documents from the event-event relations corpus (Hong et al. 2016 paper) and the vaccination corpus (link TBD).

Additional annotation could relate to veridicality. For example:
Please send annotations and observations on questions 1-8 to Susan.Brown@colorado.edu before the workshop, and we will incorporate them into our plans for the discussion session.
