Call for Papers

As techniques in Machine Learning and Data Mining have matured there is 
an increased effort to apply what these traditions have learned to 
problems in the Humanities. A wide range of computational tools have 
enabled humanities scholars to conduct research at a scale once thought 
impossible. The purpose of the special track of Artificial Intelligence 
for Digital Humanities is to provide a forum for those in this 
community, both computer scientists and humanists, to share work and 
ideas, and therefore promote their collaborations in scholarship in this 

The special track invites submissions on any aspect of Artificial 
Intelligence for Digital Humanities. This includes, but is not limited to:

Topic list:

Application of computational tools, methods and techniques in 
literature, linguistics, culture heritage, media, social sciences and 
Knowledge extraction and knowledge discovery based on cultural heritage 
The role of computer-based technologies in the digitization and curation 
of cultural heritage data
Text mining and image mining for the digital humanities
Technical challenges posed by data discovery, digital data creation, 
digital data management, and development of analytical tools that 
support the generation and dissemination of new knowledge in humanities.
Artificial Intelligence for Digital Humanities in pedagogy and academic 
Computer-based technology in Music and Acoustics
Collaborative systems to support computational humanities
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished 
work in the form of long, short papers, or poster abstracts. For
