CRETA at DH 2017

CRETA will be present at the DH conference 2017 with a number of activities:

We’re looking forward to discussing our research in Canada!

CUTE Evaluation data set

The CUTE evaluation data set is now available. The data set consists of additional texts in the four genres (letter novel, medieval arthus legend, parliamentary debate, philosophical text).

The publicly available data set can be downloaded here (without the Adorno text, due to copyright). If you have registered for CUTE before, you can re-use your download link to receive the full archive (incl. Adorno) with both the training and test data. You can also register anew here.


Submissions to the CUTE shared task (track 1) should in either XMI or CoNLL formatted files. Please send your annotated files to <> until Monday, Dec. 5th and specify a) what genre you worked on (if not all of them) and b) what kind of entity you annotated (if not all of them).

Emotionsprofil für Amalia aus Kafka's Schloss Titled Automatic Emotion Detection for Quantitative Literary Studies — A case study based on Franz Kafka’s “Das Schloss” und “Amerika”, Roman Klinger, Surayya Samat Suliya and Nils Reiter present a dictionary for emotions and first experiments for the automatic detection of emotions in literary texts. The paper can be downloaded here, the dictionaries as well as the code is publicly available here.

In the paper with the title Authorship attribution of Mediaeval German Text: style and contents in Apollonius von Tyrland, Sarah Schulz, Jonas Kuhn and Nils Reiter present stylometric works on the authorship of Heinrich von Neustadt’s Apollonius von Tyrland. The paper is available here.

While digitisation efforts are still under way, the workshop From Digitization to Knowledge (of which Nils Reiter is one of the organisers) focuses on the question of what to do with the digitised artefacts, as digitised artefacts are not supposed to be the end result of our efforts. Instead, we are interested in analysing, reading or understanding them.
The workshop takes place on July 11th, starting at 9:30 am.
