The goal of the Touché lab on argument retrieval is to foster and support the development of technologies for argument mining and argument analysis. In the third edition of Touché, we organize three shared tasks: (a) argument retrieval for controversial topics, where participants retrieve a gist of arguments from a collection of online debates, (b) argument retrieval for comparative questions, where participants retrieve argumentative passages from a generic web crawl, and (c) image retrieval for arguments, where participants retrieve images from a focused web crawl that show support or opposition to some stance. In this paper, we briefly summarize the results of two years of organizing Touché and describe the planned setup for the third edition at CLEF 2022.
