Where: GESIS-Leibniz-Institut für Sozialwissenschaften, Unter Sachsenhausen 6-8, 50667 Cologne, Germany
EXCITE is a collaborative activity of the GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and the Institute for Web Science and Technologies (WeST) which has started in September 2016. The project develops a tool chain implementing the following steps: Extraction of text from the source documents, identification of individual references in the text, segmentation of those references, matching of reference strings against bibliographic databases, and export of the matched references in usable formats and services. Special attention will be paid to the overall optimization of individual components of the citation extraction.
Our first community meeting is planned as a “noon to noon” event and has the goal to bring together experts in reference extraction, text mining, and machine learning to explore the possibilities in the project. We plan to have scientific presentations with invited speakers on the first day and hands-on sessions on the second day. For the second day we will release a test corpus (PDF files of scientific papers and manually annotated data) for developers.
