The Hexatomic project

"A minimal infrastructure for the sustainable provision of extensible multi-layer annotation software for linguistic corpora" (Hexatomic) is a joint research project at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

It is funded under the call "Research Software Sustainability" issued by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft under grant number 391160252 and runs from October 2018 until September 2021.

The project aims to implement, test, and document a minimal infrastructure for the sustainable development, provision, and maintenance of research software. The complete project proposal is available as a PDF.

This infrastructure will be used to provide the linguistic community with software for deep multi-layer annotation of linguistic corpora.

The project is located at the Department of English Studies (Jena) and the Department for German Studies and Linguistics (Berlin).
