Text Alignment System for Plagiarism Detection, version 2.0 (2015)

The version 1.0 of our system was the best-performing at the first corpus and third best-performing at the second corpus in the Text Alignment task at the 2014 international competition PAN - Uncovering Plagiarism, Authorship, and Social Software Misuse. This version 2.0 of our system, which was improved since the version 1.0 (2014), participated in the PAN 2015 competition, but no winner was announced in that year.

The system is described in the following paper(s):
