Call for Participation

EACL 2009 Workshop on

Language Technology and Resources for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Education

LaTeCH - SHELT&R 2009 30 March, 2009 Athens, Greece



Recent years have seen a growing interest in the application of language technology tools and resources to text-based research in Social sciences, Humanities and Education (SHE). Likewise, large scale digitisation projects are currently underway to make collections of cultural heritage (CH) stored in museums, archives, and libraries around the world more accessible, where it is desirable to develop powerful tools that enable annotating, structuring, enriching, searching, linking, and mining the digitised data. Language technology has an important role to play in these processes, even for collections which are primarily non-textual, since text is the pervasive medium used for metadata.

The workshop aims to foster interaction between researchers working on all aspects of language technology applied to CH and SHE domains, and experts from institutions who are testing deployed technologies and formulating improved use cases.
