The ALTA shared task ran for the third time in 2012, with the aim of bringing research students together to work on the same task and data set, and compare their methods in a current research problem. The task was based on a recent study to build classifiers for automatically labeling sentences to a pre-defined set of categories, in the domain of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM). The partaking groups demonstrated strong skills this year, outperforming our proposed benchmark systems. In this overview paper we explain the process of building the benchmark classifiers and data set, and present the submitted systems and their performance.
