We are interested in extracting social networks from text. We present a novel annotation scheme for a new type of event, called social event, in which two people participate such that at least one of them is cognizant of the other. We compare our scheme in detail to the ACE scheme. We perform a detailed analysis of inter-annotator agreement, which shows that our annotations are reliable.
