Abstract. Research activities carried out daily in research laboratories, but all of research activities involve steady, methodical work that does not produce immediate, visible results. For this reason, a mechanism to maintain motivation when research is not going well or to help students get on track with research when they have just been assigned to a laboratory could be useful. Students that have just begun their research may not yet understand how to proceed. We previously developed a research activity concierge (RAC) system, which is a platform to encompass general research activities, and applied gamification to this system to keep user motivation high. However, even with the RAC, non-research-savvy students have difficulty handling challenges and executing tasks. In this research, we focused on discussions in seminars and introduced a mechanism to support task execution in students' research activities by implementing automatic extraction of task statements into the RAC.
