        Subject: Fourth Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature -- 2nd Call for Papers

If you are one the people enthusiastic about automated processing of literary texts, by all means contribute to the Fourth Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature, co-located with NAACL HLT 2015, to be held in Denver on June 4th. Papers are due by March 4th.

Nearly everything you need to know now about the workshop appears on its Web site. Go straight tohttps://sites.google.com/site/clfl2015/call-for-papers for a list of tantalizing topics of interest -- suggest your *relevant other* topic if we missed it.

To whet your appetite, here is a selection of things discussed at the past workshops: stylistic segmentation of poetry; style, sentiment and imagery in contemporary poetry; social network analysis of "Alice in Wonderland"; learning to extract quotable phrases; recognition of classical Arabic poems; a syntactic investigation of chick lit and literature; clustering voices in "The Waste Land"; parsing screenplays for extracting social networks from movies; structure-based clustering of novels; generating music from literature. How's that for variety?
