Annotated Corpus of Scientific Conference's Homepages for Information Extraction
In this paper, we present a new corpus that contains 943 homepages of scientific conferences, 14794 including subpages, with annotations of interesting information: name of a conference, its abbreviation, place, and several important dates; that is, submission,notification, and camera ready dates. The topics of conferences included in the corpus are equally distributed over five areas: artificial intelligence, natural language processing, computer science, telecommunication, and image processing. The corpus is publicly available.
Beside the characteristics of the corpus, we present the results of information extraction from the corpus using SVM and CRF models as we would like this corpus to be considered a reference data set for this type of task.
