================================================================== From Digitization to Knowledge Workshop on Resources and Methods for Semantic Processing of Digital Works/Texts Krakow, July 11, 2016 http://nlp.cs.lth.se/events/d2k-2016/
*** EXTENDED DEADLINE: APRIL 18, 2016 *** ==================================================================
Workshop hosted by Digital Humanities 2016, Krakow, July 12-16, http://dh2016.adho.org
Internet is a revolution that will not stop “until everything is digitized” Louis Gerstner, Former Chairman of IBM, quoted in the Economist, June 4th 1998
The goal of this workshop is twofold: First, to provide a venue for researchers to describe and discuss practical methods and tools used in the construction of semantically annotated text collections, the raw material necessary to build knowledge-rich applications. We expect such tools to include lexical and semantic resources with a focus on the interlinking of concepts and entities and their integration into corpora. A second goal is to report on the on-going development of new tools for providing access to the rich information contained in large text collections. Semantic tools and resources, notably, are reaching a quality that makes them fit for building practical applications. They include ontologies, framenets, syntactic parsers, semantic parsers, entity linkers, etc. We are interested in examples of cases that make use of such advanced tools and their evaluation in the field of digital humanities, with a specific interest on multilingual and cross-lingual aspects of semantic processing of text.
Topics of interest: • Construction and use of ontologies for text collections • Entity nomenclatures and bridging • Integration of lexical knowledge in text collections • Visualization, user interfaces • Semantic repositories: Entities and propositions • Interlinking of concepts and entities in multilingual text • Representing inter-textual relations • Semantic search and information retrieval • Tools for semantic annotation • Timeline-based approaches such as “culturomics” • Technical infrastructures and standards • Quality evaluation • Applications in digital humanities
Submission: We invite papers describing or discussing practical methods and tools used in the construction of semantically annotated text collections to build knowledge-rich applications or report on the on-going development of new tools for providing access to the rich information contained in large text collections. The maximum length is either 4 pages for short papers or 8 pages plus references for long ones. The submission format should use the COLING 2014 style: http://www.coling-2014.org/instructions-for-authors.php. Papers must be submitted to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=d2k2016 in the PDF format.
Important dates: • Deadline for submission: April 18 • Notification of acceptance: May 8 • Deadline for submitting final papers, short, max. 4 pages or full, max. 8 pages: May 22 • Workshop: July 11
