13-14 June 2013, Second Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature (CLFL 2013), Atlanta GA, U.S.A

Date: 13-14 June 2013
Location: Atlanta GA, U.S.A
Deadline: 1 March 2013

The amount of literary material available on-line keeps growing rapidly: there are machine-readable texts from libraries, collections and e-book stores, as well as "live" literature such as e-zines, blogs or self-published e-books. We need tools to help navigate, visualize and better appreciate the high volume of available literature.

CLFL-2013 will focus on the subject of applying state-of-the art NLP methods to literary data, and consider questions such as: What characteristics of literature make it special? Is it, indeed, a unique type of language data? How should we adapt our tools to find meaning in literary text? What lessons from automatic processing of literature could apply to other types of data?

The Programme Committee invites submission of long and short papers, describing completed or ongoing research on systems, studies, theories and models which can inform the area of computational linguistics for literature. Position papers are welcome, too. Submission deadline: March 1, 2013
