Call for papers
Knowledge Resources for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities
September 7, 2017 - Varna, Bulgaria
Submission deadline: July 16, 2017 (extended)
Link: https://sites.google.com/view/knowrsh-2017/call-for-papers

The Knowledge Resources for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities
workshop will be held in conjunction with the 11th biennial Recent Advances
in Natural Language Processing conference (RANLP 2017) which will take place
in September 4-8, 2017, in Varna, Bulgaria. The KnowRSH workshop aims to
provide a forum for researchers working on the integration and creation of
knowledge resources for Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities applications.
In particular, KnowRSH aims at bringing together NLP researchers with
historians, political scientists, philosophers, and researchers from
infrastructure communities, such as CLARIN and DARIAH, ISKO and COST ENeL.
The workshop is endorsed by the ACL Special Interest Group on Language
Technologies for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities (SIGHUM),
DARIAH-EU Working Group for Lexical Resources as well as COST ENeL .

Scope and Topic

Big cultural heritage data present an unprecedented opportunity for the
humanities that is reshaping conventional research methods. However, digital
humanities have grown past the stage where the mere availability of digital
data was enough as a demonstrator of possibilities. Knowledge resource
modelling, development, enrichment and integration is crucial for
associating relevant information in pools of digital material which are not
only scattered across various archives, libraries and collections, but they
also often lack relevant metadata. Within this research framework, NLP
approaches originally stemming from lexico-semantic information extraction
and knowledge resource representation, modelling, development and reuse have
a pivotal role to play. From the NLP perspective, applications of knowledge
resources for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities present numerous
interesting research challenges that relate among others to the development
of historical lexico-semantic sources and annotated corpora, addressing
ambiguity and variation in historical sources and the development of
knowledge resources for NLP tool adaptation purposes, using NLP techniques
for semantic interlinking, mapping, and integration of existing knowledge
resources. Moreover, a recently renewed interest in linguistic linked data
approaches to language resources presents both a challenge and an
opportunity for NLP researchers working in the Socio-Economic Sciences and
Humanities domains, for linking cultural heritage and humanities data
sources to linguistic linked data information.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Cultural and lexico-semantic knowledge resource development and enrichmentKnowledge resource data models
Linked data approaches for the Socio-Economic Sciences and the Humanities
Semantic linking of objects in digital libraries (libraries, archives, museums and any cultural heritage institution with digital collections available)
Deep annotation of documents in the Humanities
Cultural and lexico-semantic knowledge resource integration
Knowledge resources for NLP tools domain adaptation
Knowledge metadata standards & de-facto standards evolution and application
Dealing with variation and historical language use in developing and applying knowledge resources

Dealing with cultural and historical information ambiguity and
underspecification 

Information for authors

Authors are invited to submit papers on original, unpublished work in the
topic area of the workshop, related use cases, or system demos. Long papers
should present completed work and may consist of up to eight (8) pages of

Revolution: Bringing together archivists and scholars to preserve
born-digital records and produce new knowledge” - funded by my British
Academy Rising Star Engagement Award.

The second workshop will be in London: 25-26 January 2018. I will send
the call for papers later this summer.

As announced previously, the first workshop will be in Manchester:
