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 GA 1288/11-1 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).
