Call for Participation We invite participation in the HIPE shared task on NE 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 In the context of massive digitization of historical documents, the objective of this shared task is to assess and advance the development of robust named entity processing systems able to deal with challenging,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.

Results of participating teams will appear in the working notes proceedings, published by CEUR Workshop<http://ceur-ws.org/> Proceedings and be presented in the CLEF conference in Sept 2020.

Tasks 1. Named Entity Recognition and Classification (coarse and fine-grained) 2. Entity Linking

Data The data consists of 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 are happy to announce the data release v1.0<https://github.com/impresso/CLEF-HIPE-2020/tree/master/data> with training and dev sets for French and German, and dev set for English (ca 24k mentions and linked entities).
