The Genia event task, a bio-molecular event extraction task, is arranged as one of the main tasks of BioNLP Shared Task 2011. As its sec- ond time to be arranged for community-wide focused efforts, it aimed to measure the ad- vance of the community since 2009, and to evaluate generalization of the technology to full text papers. After a 3-month system de- velopment period, 15 teams submitted their performance results on test cases. The re- sults show the community has made a sig- nificant advancement in terms of both perfor- mance improvement and generalization.
