For its fourth organization, the Genia event extraction (GE) shared task is refactored toward a general platform for shared information extraction (IE) tasks, and for an IEdriven knowledge base (KB) system. On the newly implemented shared task platform, the GE task is run as an experimental task. The task and the platform has been tested by two teams who cooperated with the organizers. The paper presents the new shared task system and discusses on the experimental submissions.
