2nd Call for Papers - Conference on Computational Humanities Research (CHR2021)

Submission deadline: July 2, 2021 Dates: November 17 - November 19, 2021 Venue: Online Website: https://2021.computational-humanities-research.org/ Twitter: @CompHumResearch<https://twitter.com/CompHumResearch> Hashtag: #chr2021 Contact: info at computational-humanities-research.org<mailto:info at computational-humanities-research.org>

We are very honoured and pleased the following speakers have accepted to give keynotes at CHR2021: - Jacob Eisenstein (Google AI) - Iza Romanowska (Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies) - Sara Tonelli (Digital Humanities Research Unit FBK)

Description: In the arts and humanities, the use of computational, statistical, and mathematical approaches has considerably increased in recent years. This research is characterized by the use of formal methods and the construction of explicit, computational models. This includes quantitative, statistical approaches, but also more generally computational methods for processing and analyzing data, as well as theoretical reflections on these approaches. In this context, the CHR conference seeks to support a growing community of researchers with an interest in computational approaches to the humanities, and to offer an international and interdisciplinary venue to present and publish computational work that does not lose sight of traditional modes of inquiry in the arts and humanities.

Topics of interest: We invite original research papers from a wide range of topics, including – but not limited to – the following:

- Applications of statistical methods (machine learning) to process, enrich and analyse humanities and cultural heritage data; - Hypothesis-driven humanities research; - Development of empirical methods for humanities research; - Modeling bias, uncertainty, and conflicting interpretation in the humanities; - Evaluation methods and development of standards; - Statistical evaluation of categorization / periodization; - Explanatory models for humanities research; - Theories for quantitative methods and computational humanities approaches; - Translation and transfer of methods from other disciplines, approaches to bridge humanistic and

statistical interpretations.

To gain further insight into paper topics, please also refer to CHR2020 proceedings: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2723/

Submission types:

- Long Papers: up to 6000 words (ca. 12 pages, references, abstract and tables/illustrations excluded), long papers report on completed, original and unpublished results. Brevity of argument is preferred. We welcome the use of appendices or other supplementary information.

- Short Papers: up to 3000 words (ca. 6 pages, references, abstract and tables/illustrations excluded), small papers report on focussed contributions, and may present work in progress, negative results, and opinion pieces.

Overleaf has a word count functionality, or one can use the TexCount<https://app.uio.no/ifi/texcount/> application.

Submission instructions and review process:

- Submissions should be written in English and must be formatted according to the CHR latex template<https://github.com/cohure/CHR-2021/raw/main/chr2021_latex_template.zip> (see instructions on the forum to get you started here<https://discourse.computational-humanities-research.org/t/chr-latex-instructions/230>).

- At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference and present the paper.

- Accepted papers will be submitted for publication to the CEUR-WS<http://ceur-ws.org/> Proceedings publication service.

Authors are encouraged to openly share code and data. If the authors have created an openly available dataset associated with the research presented in the CHR2021 paper, in addition to the conference paper, they are welcome to submit a data paper describing their dataset in the Special Collection on Computational Humanities Data<https://discourse.computational-humanities-research.org/t/cfp-computational-humanities-research-data-journal-of-open-humanities-data/706> of the Journal of Open Humanities Data<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/>, which accepts submissions on a rolling basis.
