Digital Humanities Hackathon on Text Re-Use: "Don't leave your data
problems at home!"
27-30 July, 2015
Hosted by the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH),
Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany
Organised by: Emily Franzini, Greta Franzini and Maria Moritz
The Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities will host a Hackathon
targeted at students and researchers with a humanities background who
wish to improve their computer skills by working with their own
data-set. Rather than teaching everything there is to know about
algorithms, the Hackathon will assist participants with their specific
data-related problem, so that they can take away the knowledge needed to
tackle the issue(s) at hand. The focus of this Hackathon is automatic
text re-use detection and aims at engaging participants in intensive
collaboration. Participants will be introduced to technologies
representing the state of the art in the field and shown the potential
of text re-use detection. Participants will also be able to equip
themselves with the necessary knowledge to make sense of the output
generated by algorithms detecting text re-use, and will gain an
understanding of which algorithms best fit certain types of textual
data. Finally, participants will be introduced to some text re-use

Last Call for Papers
The 9th Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage,
Social Sciences, and Humanities (LaTeCH 2015) to be held in
conjunction with ACL-IJCNLP 2015.
July 30 2015
*** Extended paper submission deadline: 17 May 2015 ***
** About the Workshop **
The 9th SIGHUM Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities will be held in conjunction with ACL-IJCNLP 2015, in Beijing, China, July 30 2015.
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 and LaTeCH 2014 at EACL in Gothenburg, Sweden.
** Scope and Topics **
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 **
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 2015 submission website at:

Subject: event: graduate students discussing DH projects
Dear Humanist readers,
While the following event is happening in New York, it may be of interest
to many people on this list. All are welcome!
MEDIA RES #1:
lightning talks by NYC graduate students on DH projects (in English &
2:00 - 3:30 pm, Friday, May 8th, 2015
CUNY Graduate Center, Room C415A, New York, NY 10016
NYC has more graduate students executing projects in the digital humanities
than perhaps anywhere else in the world. Even so, few venues exist that make
visible the diverse set of methods, philosophies, and inquiries that drive
this graduate student work in English Studies. Media Res #1 will present a
wide array of approaches to theoretically-informed questions through a
series of 12 five-minute lightning talks by graduate students doing
student-driven digital humanities research in NYC. These talks and the
subsequent discussions the talks engender will serve as a useful entry point
into DH for students who might otherwise not know where to start. Equally
important, Media Res #1 will foster a burgeoning network of graduate student
scholars working across academic institutions to collaborate on intellectual
inquiry, share knowledge and practical expertise in DH, and inspire
confidence and mutual support. This event will conclude with a moderated
discussion inviting speakers and audience alike to explore how universities
might better support and promote ongoing student-driven DH work.
While Media Res #1 highlights student DH projects in English and literature,
future Media Res events will explore DH work in different disciplines,
formats, and venues. Any questions or suggestions for future Media Res
events should be directed to Erin Glass (erin.glass at gmail.com
<erin.glass at gmail.com>) or Aaron Plasek (aaronplasek at gmail.com

Subject: 1st EADH international Day 8th October 2015- Call for participation
It is apleasure for us to announce that thefirst EADH International Day on the 8th October 2015 at UNED(National University for Distance Education – Open University) Madrid, Spain.
The first annual European Association for Digital Humanities Symposium (EADH Day) will beheld in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference of the Hispanic Digital Humanities Association at UNED, and hosted by LINHD in Madrid. The purpose of the event is to provide the principal annual focus for practitioners of Digital Humanities in Europe to network and discuss common challenges and opportunities.
Participants may contribute directly to EADH Day agenda in two ways:
- Through a 5 minute lightning talk presenting either recent research developments or key topics of interest to the digital humanities community (e.g. ‘The potential of Linked Data for annotating medieval music scores’). Participants wishing to present lightning talks should provide a two-page abstract of the presentation in English which will be made available online prior to the event.
- Through the proposition of a challenge for participants to address during the event related to the themes of:
collaborating across borders
collaborating across languages
collaborating across disciplines
collaborating across curricula
Challenges should take the form of an open question (e.g. ‘Does DH have an impact on minority languages? How can it strengthen their use and support research on them?’), with one or two paragraphs of text justifying its significance.
Submissions should be sent via this web by May 15th and lightning talks and challenges will selected by an EADH panel. Presentation of a lightning talk or challenge is not a requirement and anyone may register to attend the event via the www.hdh2015.linhd.es website.
