This paper presents our participation for sub-task1 (1.1 and 1.2) in SemEval 2018 task 7: Semantic Relation Extraction and Classification in Scientific Papers (Gábor et al., 2018) . We experimented on this task with two methods: CNN method and traditional pipeline method. We use the context between two entities (included) as input information for both methods, which extremely reduce the noise effect. For the CNN method, we construct a simple convolution neural network to automatically learn

For the traditional pipeline method, we use the Hackabout method as a representation which is described in section3.5. The CNN method's result is much better than traditional pipeline method (49.1% vs. 42.3% and 71.1% vs. 54.6% ).
