4th Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature
1st Call for Papers
Denver, Colorado
June 4 or 5, 2015
Co-located with NAACL 2015

If you among those who heartily approve of automated processing of literary texts, consider contributing to the Fourth Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature, co-located with NAACL HLT 2015 in Denver. Papers are due by March 4th.

Nearly everything you need to know now about the workshop appears on its Web site. Go straight to https://sites.google.com/site/clfl2015/call-for-papers for a list of exciting topics of interest -- tell us if yours is not there.

To whet your appetite, here is a selection of topics from the past workshops: stylistic segmentation of poetry; style, sentiment and imagery in contemporary poetry; social network analysis of "Alice in Wonderland"; learning to extract quotable phrases; recognition of classical Arabic poems; a syntactic investigation of chick lit and literature; clustering voices in "The Waste Land"; parsing screenplays for extracting social networks from movies; structure-based clustering of novels; generating music from literature. Wow!
