  • BEL statements must be syntactically correct to be accepted for evaluation: BEL terms (representing entities) must be complete and in a correct format (containing either an abundance or a process function depending on the namespace), otherwise a submission will not be evaluated

  • BEL statements can be submitted as full BEL statements or as fragments of full BEL statements. A submitted BEL statement is automatically cut into its fragments to ensure evaluations on different levels (see below).

  • There will be two submission deadlines (see Important Dates): After the first submission deadline, gold standard entities will be released. These can be used by the participants to prepare a second submission. A unlimited number of BEL statements/BEL fragments will be accepted in each run. F-Score will be the primary evaluation metric and therefore high recall approaches will be penalized.
