Workshop description:
------------------------------------
In recent years the text-based humanities and social sciences
experienced a synthesis between the increasing availability of digitized
texts and algorithms from the fields of information retrieval and text
mining that resulted in novel tools for text processing and analysis,
and enabled entirely new questions and innovative methodologies.

The goal of this workshop is to investigate which consequences and
potentials for computer science have emerged in turn from the
digitization of the social sciences and humanities.

The workshop starts with a series of four invited talks by leading
researchers in the field of eHumanities. Their presentations will
revolve around the question "How can computer science benefit from
eHumanities?". The afternoon will focus on demonstrations and
discussions of different solutions to an open challenge, which aims to
contrast and compare methods used in computer science with those in the
humanities.. In this section, members from both fields of the
eHumanities community will apply their own methods and tools on data of
their choice to solve a set of previously announced problems. The exact
challenges will be made public with the official announcement of the
workshop and will be focused on current issues of unsupervised semantic
analysis of text which are relevant to computer science, e. g. the
handling of unexpected relations and associations, the treatment of rare
textual patterns, or the merging of heterogeneous sources.

The date for the workshop has been fixed on Thursday, September 30th,
2010. Prof. Dr. Stefan Wrobel (Director IAIS, Bonn/St. Augustin), Dr.
Helge Kahler (Federal Ministry of Education and Research - Department of
Humanities), Peter Wittenburg (MPG Nijmegen - Project CLARIN) and Prof.
Dr. Gregory Crane (Tufts University, Boston - Project PERSEUS) will be
the speakers for the morning session.
