        Subject: CfP: Standardisation and Innovation - European Academy of Management


The European Academy of Management are holding their annual conference
in Valencia, Spain (very nice place, btw) on 4 - 7 June 2014. This is
the first time that a track on 'Standardisation and Innovation' will be
a dedicated part of the conference (well, that's what we're aiming at).

Below you will find the CfP. The submission deadline is 16 January, so
you'd better start thinking (and writing) ....

You may find more information about the conference on

EURAM 2014:              Valencia
Track Number:	           06_01
Track Name: 	            Standardisation and Innovation
Special Interest Group: 	Innovation

By now, many academics, policy makers and practitioners have accepted
that standardisation is not the adversary of innovation as which it has
been portrayed until not so long ago. These days, some scholars consider
standards as both a constraint for and an enabler of innovation, others
see them as a common basis upon which innovation can flourish. The
European Commission now recognizes standardisation as an essential
instrument to enhance innovation and competitiveness in Europe. However,
the precise nature of the inter?relation between both still remains
largely unclear.

This Track aims to improve this situation. To this end, it will bring
together scholars, researchers and practitioners that have a stake in
research into standardisation and innovation. This will be a highly
multi?disciplinary group of people, with backgrounds including, but by
no means limited to, Business Studies, Management Studies, Economics,
History, Law, Sociology, Engineering, Computer Science, Information
Systems, and Policy Studies. Thus, the track will provide an opportunity
for experts from these very different communities to meet, interact,
exchange views and ideas and, ultimately, come to a better understanding
of the mutual dependencies between standardisation and innovation.
While such a better understanding is clearly desirable for the academic
community, it has also potentially significant practical ramifications.
Not least due to the associated IPR issues, standardisation has become a
multi?billion Dollar business. Accordingly, a better understanding of
how to use standards as an enabler of innovation, and how to prevent
them from becoming a constraining factor, is of considerable interest to
both for companies and policy makers.

The Track will look at both the role of standardisation (the process)
and of standards (the resulting product) in relation to innovation. That
is, it will try to find answers to the questions:

* How can standards be deployed as an enabler of innovation?
* How can standardisation be used as a platform for (open) innovation?
* How to better understand the overlapping concepts of standards,
dominant designs and platforms?

Third Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature
April 27, 2014, Göteborg, Sweden, co-located with EACL 2014


Second Call for Papers

(with apologies for multiple postings)

The purpose of the series of ACL workshops on Computational Linguistics for Literature is to bring together researchers fascinated with literature as a unique type of data which pose distinct challenges. We invite papers on original unpublished work in this broad area. In particular, we hope to see papers which explore how the state-of-the-art NLP methods can help solve existing research problems in the humanities, or perhaps suggest new problems.

Literary texts revolve around the human condition, emotions, social life and inner life. Naturally, such data abound in common-sense knowledge but are very thin on technical jargon. Can tools and methods developed in the ACL community help process literary data? When do they work, when do they fail and why? What new instruments do we need in order to work with prose and poetry, on a large or small scale? Are there computational solutions of noteworthy problems in the Humanities, Information Science, Library Sciences and other similar disciplines?

Here are some of the topics of interest to the workshop:

- the needs of the readers and how these needs translate into meaningful NLP tasks;
- searching for literature;
- recommendation systems for literature;
- computational modelling of narratives, computational narratology, computational folkloristics;
- summarization of literature;
- differences between literature and other types of writing as relevant to computational linguistics;
- discourse structure in literature;
- emotion analysis for literature;
- profiling and authorship attribution;
- identification and analysis of literary genres;
- building and analyzing social networks of characters;
- generation of literary narrative, dialogue or poetry;
- modelling literary dialogue for generation.

We will consider regular papers which describe experimental methods or theoretical work, and we will gladly welcome position papers. The NLP community does not study literature often enough, so it is important to discuss and formulate the problems before proposing solutions.

The submission deadline is January 23, 2014.

*Joint Summer School of ESU DH "Culture & Technology" and CLARIN-D , 21 
July - 2 August 2014 University of Leipzig - 

ESU DH “Culture & Technology” and CLARIN-D are happy to announce that 
they will organise a joint Summer School in 2014 at the University of 
Leipzig. This Summer School will take place from the 21st of July 
(arrival) to the 2nd of August (departure). Through this collaboration 
we seek to cover a broad spectrum of Digital Humanities topics. A 
special focus will be on the use of language technology in Digital 

Thanks to our sponsors, the following support for participants will be 

    The Electronic Textual Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria
    will sponsor up to 5 tuition fellowships for graduate students and
    postdoctoral fellows who take part in this Summer School.

    Funding granted by the German Accademic Exchange Service (DAAD) will
    allow us to support travel and accommodation costs of up to 15
    alumni / alumnae of German universities. Alumni / Alumnae are people
    from outside Germany who as students, graduates, researchers or
    lecturers have received a degree at a German University or have
    studied, conducted research or worked at a German University *at
    least for three months* and who are now outside Germany.

More information will be comunicated soon.
