CLEF 2017 eRisk Overview: Early Risk Prediction on the Internet: Experimental Foundations

This paper provides an overview of eRisk 2017. This was the first year that this lab was organized at CLEF. The main purpose of eRisk was to explore issues of evaluation methodology, effectiveness metrics and other processes related to early risk detection. Early detection technologies can be employed in different areas, particularly those related to health and safety. The first edition of eRisk had two possible ways to participate: a pilot task on early risk detection of depression, and a workshop open to the submission of papers related to the topics of the lab.
