Abstract: After all the work done in tasks like question classification, query expansion or information extraction in QA, we consider that some efforts should now be put specially on giving the answer to the user. In this paper we adopt the concept of cooperative answer – that is, a correct, useful and non-misleading answer – since it is our opinion that finding and presenting the cooperative answer to the user is one of the next challenges in QA.With that goal in mind, we focus on three main aspects that should deserve the attention of the QA community: the ability of systems to relate the candidate answers for a question; their ability to decide which candidates are possible final answers, given the question, but also the user who posed it; and, finally, the ability of generating the final answer in a cooperative way.
