We invite participation in the HIPE shared task on named entity processing as part of CLEF 2020 Evaluation Labs. In the context of massive digitization of historical documents, the objective of this shared task is to assess and advance the development of robust named entity processing systems able to deal with challenging, multilingual, diachronic historical material, thereby supporting information extraction and text understanding of cultural heritage data.


1. Named Entity Recognition and Classification (high-level and fine-grained)

2. Entity Linking

Data Historical newspaper articles in French, German and American English originating from Swiss, Luxembourgish and American digitized newspaper archives and selected on a diachronic basis. The time span of the whole corpus goes from 1798 until 2018. We will provide sample, training and development data.
