11 August 2016, 10th Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities (LaTeCH 2016), Berlin, Germany

Date: Thursday 11 August 2016
Location: Berlin, Germany
Deadline: 1 May 2016

The LaTeCH workshop series aims to provide a forum for researchers who are working on developing novel information technology for improved information access to data from the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Heritage. Since the formation of SIGHUM (ACL Special Interest Group on Language Technologies for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities), the LaTeCH workshop is also the venue for the SIGHUM annual research and business meeting. LaTeCH 2016 is to be held in conjunction with ACL 2016.

In the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Heritage communities there is increasing interest in and demand for NLP methods for semantic annotation, intelligent linking, discovery, querying, cleaning, and visualization of both primary and secondary data. These domains of application entail new challenges for NLP research. For this reason, it is of mutual benefit that NLP experts, data specialists, and digital humanities researchers working in and across these domains get involved in the Computational Linguistics community and present their fundamental or applied research results.

Authors are invited to submit papers on original, unpublished work in the topic areas of the workshop. In addition to long papers presenting completed work, we also invite short papers and system descriptions (demos). Short & long paper submission deadline: May 1st, 2016.
