In this paper we present the second edition of the FACT shared task (Factuality Annotation and Classification Task), included in IberLEF2020. The main objective of this task is to advance in the study of the factuality of the events mentioned in texts. This year, the FACT task includes a subtask on event identification in addition to the factuality classification subtask. We describe the submitted systems as well as the corpus used, which is the same used in FACT 2019 but extended by adding annotations for nominal events.
