HistoInformatics2021 - the 6th International Workshop on Computational History will be held on September 30th, 2021 in conjunction with The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL2021). The HistoInformatics workshop series brings together researchers in the historical disciplines, computer science and associated disciplines as well as the cultural heritage sector. Historians, like other humanists, show keen interests in computational approaches to the study and processing of digitized sources (usually text, images, audio). In computer science, experimental tools and methods stand the challenge to be validated regarding their relevance for real-world questions and applications. The HistoInformatics workshop series is designed to bring researchers in both fields together, to discuss best practices as well as possible future collaborations.


We invite papers from a wide range of topics which are of relevance for history, the cultural heritage sector and the humanities in general. Besides original research papers, we also invite submissions of diverse types including position papers, project descriptions, or demo type papers. The workshop targets researchers who work on the intersections of history and computer science. The papers on the following and related topics (but not limited to) are especially welcome:


Natural language processing and text analytics applied to historical



Analysis of longitudinal document collections


Time Series Analysis and Survival Analysis


Search and retrieval in document archives and historical collections,

associative search


Causal relationship discovery based on historical resources


Named entity recognition and disambiguation


Entity relationship extraction, detecting and resolving historical

references in text


Finding analogical entities over time


Network Analysis


Computational linguistics for old texts


Analysis of language change over time


Modelling evolution of entities and relationships over time


Automatic multimedia document dating


Simulating and recreating the past course of actions, social relations,

motivations, figurations


Handling uncertain and fragmentary text and image data


Mining Wikipedia for historical data


OCR and transcription old texts


Effective interfaces for searching, browsing or visualizing historical

data collections


Studies on collective memory


Studying and modeling forgetting and remembering processes


Estimating credibility of historical findings


Epistemologies in the Humanities and Computer Science


Computer Vision applied to historical image collections


Full paper submissions are limited to 8 pages, while short paper submissions should be no more than 4 pages (including bibliography). Submissions need to be:


formatted according to Easychair paper formatting guidelines

<https://easychair.org/publications/for_authors> (



original and have not been submitted for publication elsewhere.


submitted in English in PDF format at the workshop’s Easychair page

<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hi20210> (



submissions do not need to be anonymized.

There is no requirement of anonymity so it is up to authors if they wish to reveal or conceal their names in submissions. Submissions will be evaluated by at least three different reviewers with backgrounds in Computer Science and History. The accepted papers will be published on CEUR Workshop Proceedings <http://ceur-ws.org/> (http://ceur-ws.org/).

Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit to the special issue on HistoInformatics ( https://jdmdh.episciences.org/page/histoinformatics) at the Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities (https://jdmdh.episciences.org/).

Papers should be submitted using https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=hi20210#
