The 10th Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities (LaTeCH 2016) to be held in conjunction with ACL 2016.

** SUBMISSION NOW OPEN ** ** https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/latech/ **

August 11, 2016 Berlin, Germany



** About the Workshop **

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.

The workshop is a continuation of LaTeCH 2007 held at ACL, in Prague, Czech Republic, LaTeCH 2008 at LREC, in Marrakech, Morocco, LaTeCH 2009 at EACL, in Athens, Greece, LaTeCH 2010 at ECAI, in Lisbon, Portugal, LaTeCH 2011 at ACL/HLT, in Portland, Oregon, USA, LaTeCH 2012 at EACL, in Avignon, France, LaTeCH 2013 at ACL, in Sofia, Bulgaria, LaTeCH 2014 at EACL in Gothenburg, Sweden and LaTeCH 2015 at ACL-IJCNLP 2015 in Beijing, China.

** Scope and Topics **

The LaTeCH workshop series aims to provide a forum for researchers who are working on developing language technologies for the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Heritage. It is endorsed by the ACL Special Interest Group on Language Technologies for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities (SIGHUM).

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, which holds even for collections that are primarily non-textual, as text is also the pervasive medium used for metadata.

These domains of application entail new challenges for NLP research, such as noisy, non-standard textual or multi-modal input, historical languages, multilingual parts within one document, lack of digital semantic resources, or resource-intensive approaches that call for (semi-)automatic processing tools and domain adaptation, or, as a last resort, intense manual effort. Digital libraries still lack tools for content analysis; documents are linked mostly through metadata, and deep semantic annotation is missing.

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.

This edition of the LaTeCH workshop is looking for, but not limited to, contributions from the following topics

- Adapting NLP tools to Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities domains - Dealing with linguistic variation and non-standard or historical use of language - Linking and retrieving information from different sources, media, and domains - Modelling of information and knowledge - Automatic creation of semantic resources - Automatic error detection and cleaning - Complex annotation tools and interfaces - Discourse and narrative analysis - Research infrastructure and standardisation efforts - Text mining and sentiment analysis - User modeling, recommendation, personalisation - Information for authors

** Information for Authors **

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):

- Long papers should present completed work and may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content, with two (2) additional pages of references. - Short papers/demos can present work in progress, or the description of a system, and may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, with two (2) additional pages of references.

All submissions are to use the ACL stylesheets (.sty, .bst, .dot).

The reviewing process will be double-blind; the papers should not include the authors’ names and affiliations, or any references to web sites, project names, etc., revealing the authors’ identity. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author’s identity should be avoided. Authors should not use anonymous citations and should not include any acknowledgments. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

Papers should be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via the LaTeCH 2016 submission website: https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/latech/. For more details, please visit: https://sighum.wordpress.com/events/latech-2016/.
