JCDL 2018 - Vannevar Bush Best Paper Award

Our paper „Entity-Aspect Linking: Providing Fine-Grained Semantics of Entities in Context“ has recently won the Vannevar Bush best paper award at the 2018 Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL), the top conference in the field of digital libraries!

The work, coauthored by Federico Nanni, Simone Paolo Ponzetto and Laura Dietz, is part of a collaboration between the DWS group and the University of New Hampshire in the context of an Elite Post-Doc grant of the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung recently awarded from Laura.
