Meeting Description: GermEval 2014 Named Entity Recognition Shared Task for German
https://sites.google.com/site/germeval2014ner/
Co-located with KONVENS 2014, October 8-10, Hildesheim, Germany

Named Entity Recognition (NER) has been shown useful for a wide range of NLP tasks.
Even though German is a relatively well-resourced language, NER for German has been challenging, both because capitalization is a less useful feature than in other languages, and because existing training data sets are encumbered by license problems. Therefore, no publicly available NER taggers for German exist that are free of usage restrictions and perform at high levels of accuracy.

The GermEval 2014 NER Shared Task is an event that makes available CC-licensed German data with NER annotation with the goal of significantly advancing the state of the art in German NER and to push the field of NER towards nested representations of named entities.

GermanEval 2014 NER is associated with KONVENS 2014 and will take place as a KONVENS workshop at Hildesheim in Oct 2014.
