This paperdescribes our entry to the 2011 CoNLL closedtask (Pradhanet al., 2011)on modelingun- restrictedcoreferencein OntoNotes. Our systemis based on the Reconcilecoreferenceresolutionre- searchplatform.Reconcileis a generalsoftware in- frastructurefor the developmentof learning-based noun phrase (NP) coreferenceresolutionsystems. Ourentryfor the CoNLLclosedtaskis a configura- tionof Reconcileintendedto do wellon OntoNotes data. Thispaperdescribesourconfigurationof Rec- oncileas well as the changesthat we had to imple- mentto integratewiththeOntoNotestaskdefinition and data formats. We also presentand discussthe performanceof our system under different testing conditionson a withheldvalidationset.
