The 1st Workshop on Teaching NLP for Digital Humanities (Teach4DH)

--  Final Call for Papers --

https://teach4dh.github.io

Held in conjunction with GSCL 2017 (http://gscl2017.dfki.de/),
Berlin, Germany, September 12, 2017

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

=======================

Computational linguists often teach digital humanities (DH) modules that
focus on using / applying / adapting NLP technologies and resources to DH
problems. The challenge in such modules is to introduce students with a
background in humanities or social sciences to technical content without
going into detail. NLP tools often require special input formats, knowledge
of program options, and post-processing of the output. NLP resources are
often not easily accessible and provide only limited interaction. Interfaces
and search tools require knowledge of specialized search syntax.

The workshop is intended to provide a forum for such “NLP teachers” to share
experiences, discuss best practices, introduce teaching concepts, and
present demos of existing technology. It also provides an opportunity for DH
researchers to express their needs and provide directions for future DH
curricular developments. The workshop is intended to foster collaborations
and to cross-fertilize knowledge and approaches across DH disciplines.

Teach4DH is co-organized by GSCL's SIG Education and Profession and
supported by CLARIN.

WORKSHOP TOPICS

=======================

We welcome submissions of long and short papers, posters, and demonstrations
relating to any aspect of teaching NLP in DH classes, including:

- Didactic units / concepts / tools for employing NLP in teaching "on stage"
- Challenges in teaching for a non-CL audience
- Exploiting NLP tools "behind the scenes" for creating didactic DH material
- Curricular considerations in developing standards for DH programs

See the website at https://teach4dh.github.io for more details, including
submission instructions. If you have any questions, please feel free to
