CRETA Unshared Task on Entities

We invite for contributions to an shared/unshared task workshop, to be held during DHd 2017, Bern, Switzerland or shortly thereafter in Stuttgart, Germany. While shared tasks are used as a direct benchmark for different systems/approaches/methods on a clearly defined and evaluated task, unshared tasks are open to various kinds of contributions, based on a common data set. Shared and unshared tasks in the fields of digital humanities are a promising way of fostering collaboration and interaction between Humanities scholars and Computer Science researchers.
