        Subject: Historical Text Reuse Detection tutorial - Rome, January 2017


The Sixth Conference of the Italian Association of Digital Humanities 
(AIUCD) will host a pre-conference tutorial on Historical Text Reuse 
Detection between 23-24 January 2017 in Rome, Italy.
The tutorial is organised by the /electronic Text Reuse Acquisition 
Project/ (eTRAP), based at the University of Göttingen, in collaboration 
with Fabio Ciotti and the /Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training 
Network/ (DiXiT).

The tutorial addresses participants who are interested in finding text 
reuse between two or multiple texts (in the same language). It teaches 
them how to explore, use and semi-automatically run TRACER 
(http://www.etrap.eu/research/tracer/) in order to detect and visualise 
text reuse in multifarious corpora. Moreover, it strongly encourages 
participants to adapt and apply newly acquired knowledge to their 
personal research in order to establish collaborations and produce joint 
publications.

More information about the tutorial and the conference can be accessed 
here: http://www.etrap.eu/tracer-tutorial-rome-2017/

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

LT for DH: Language Technology Resources and Tools for
       Digital Humanities (LT4DH)

       https://www.clarin-d.net/lt4dh

December 11, 2016
Co-located with COLING 2016, Osaka, Japan

You are welcome to participate at LT4DH, the first Workshop on Language 
Technology Resources and Tools for Digital Humanities.

****NEWS****

The program is now available at:

       https://www.clarin-d.net/en/current-issues/lt4dh/lt4dh-program

Language resources are increasingly used not only in Language Technology 
(LT), but also in other subject fields, such as the digital humanities 
(DH) and in the field of education. Applying LT tools and data for such 
fields implies new perspectives on these resources regarding domain 
adaptation, interoperability, technical requirements, documentation, and 
usability of user interfaces. This workshop will focus on the use of LT 
tools and data in DH, the discussion will focus on example applications 
and the type and range of research questions where LT tools can be 
beneficial. We received thirty-eight contributions, from which the 
programme committee selected a high-quality, interdisciplinary program 
with eight oral presentations and seventeen poster presentations.

The proceedings are going to appear in the ACL anthology soon.

You can register for LT4DH through the COLING website:
