contests at ICON 2013

The ICON 2013 tools contest is on Named Entity Recognition in Indian languages (IL). The NER involves the identification of proper names from the texts and classification of them into some
predefined categories of interest such as Person, Location, Organization, Miscellaneous (date, time, percentages, monetary expressions etc.). This is an important component for many NLP applications such as Machine Translation, Question-Answering, Automatic Summarization, Information Extraction etc.
