Background and Motivation

Starting as an initiative to provide a common testbed for the task of Dialog State Tracking, the first Dialog State Tracking Challenge (DSTC) was organized in 2013, followed by DSTC2&3 in 2014, DSTC4 in 2015, and DSTC5 in 2016. Given the remarkable success of the first five editions, and understanding both, the complexity of the dialog phenomenon and the interest of the research community in a wider variety of dialog related problems, the DSTC rebranded itself as "Dialog System Technology Challenges" for its sixth edition. Then, DSTC6, DSTC7, DSTC8, DSTC9, and DSTC10 have been completed in in 2017-2021.


In this eleventh challenge, the call for task proposals has resulted into the following 5 different tracks split across two sessions: (1) Ambiguous Candidate Identification and Coreference Resolution for Immersive Multimodal Conversations, (2) Intent Induction from Conversations for Task-Oriented Dialogue, (3) Speech-Aware Dialog Systems Technology Challenge, (4) Robust and Multilingual Automatic Evaluation Metrics for Open-Domain Dialogue Systems and (5) Task-oriented Conversational Modeling with Subjective Knowledge. The objective of these tracks is to invite interested organizations conduct dialog related challenges in specific areas of research and under the umbrella of the DSTC.
