1st Shared Task on the Analysis of Narrative Levels Through Annotation (SANTA)
We would like to invite you to participate in the 1st Shared Task on Narrative Level Annotation. It is an adaptation of the shared task-format established in the field of Computational Linguistics and Informatics to the field of Literary Studies. The goal of the first phase of this (two-phased) shared task is the collaborative creation of annotation guidelines, which in turn will serve as a basis for the second phase, an automatisation-oriented shared task. The (intended) audience for the first round of the shared task are researchers interested in the (manual) analysis of narrative, who then have influence over the target concept that computer scientists later aim at automatically finding.
During the first few months, the participants develop annotation guidelines on their own. We provide a development corpus (see below) that can be used to test guidelines internally. On June 15, the guidelines are to be submitted to us.
