The 1st Workshop on Teaching NLP for Digital Humanities 
  --  Deadline extension: Sunday July, 23  --


Held in conjunction with GSCL 2017 
Berlin, Germany, September 12, 2017


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.


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 

See the website at https://teach4dh.github.io for more 
details, including submission instructions. If you have 
any questions, please feel free to contact the workshop 
co-chairs at teach4dh at googlegroups.com.


All submission deadlines are at 11:59 p.m. PST
