We invite contributions to the 1st Shared Task on automatic Scene Segmentation (STSS) for German narrative texts. Scenes are time-, location- and plot-wise coherent units of a story, and can predominantly be found in narrative texts like novels or biographies. Scene segmentation is needed for a high-level content analysis of longer texts, but also for many subsequent tasks for NLP applied in longer narrative texts, since even modern methods struggle with processing text longer than a couple of sentences or paragraphs.
All the details can be found here: http://go.uniwue.de/stss2021.
The shared task is co-located with KONVENS 2021: https://konvens2021.phil.hhu.de
