The DLF Forum http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/  is an annual meeting where the digital library community comes together to discover better methods of working through sharing and collaboration. It serves as a resource and catalyst among digital library developers, project managers, and all who are invested in digital library issues. The 2015 DLF Forum will be held in Vancouver, BC, October 26-28.

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2015 DLF Forum program. The Program Planning Committee requests proposals within the broad framework of digital collections, infrastructure, resources, and organizational priorities. You do not need to be part of a member organization in order to submit a proposal.

The Forum traditionally has no overarching theme so that we can craft a program that speaks to current issues of interest to our community. We depend on contributors to focus proposals on action-oriented topics targeted towards a practitioner audience, considering the aspects of design, management, implementation, assessment, and collaboration.

Suggested topical areas for 2015 include:
Linked data implementations
Collaborative digital projects across GLAM institutions
Innovative approaches to engaging users and reusing data and collections (e.g., data visualization, mapping, crowdsourcing, citizen science)
Systems architecture, both hardware and code
Open data, open access, or open educational resources

This is not a prescriptive list; we encourage you to be creative, collaborative, and collegial.

Proposals are due June 22. For more information and to submit your proposal, please visit http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/cfp/

The call for proposals for the DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Preconference is also open until June 22.

Please share widely. Apologies for cross-posting.

Sentiment Elicitation from Natural Text 
for Information Retrieval and Extraction

Submissions are invited to the 5th ICDM Workshop on Sentiment Elicitation from
Natural Text for Information Retrieval and Extraction (SENTIRE) to be held at
ICDM'15 this November in Atlantic City. For more information, please visit

Memory and data capacities double approximately every two years and, apparently,
the Web is following the same rule. User-generated contents, in particular, are
an ever-growing source of opinion and sentiments which are continuously spread
worldwide through blogs, wikis, fora, chats and social networks. The
distillation of knowledge from such sources is a key factor for applications in
fields such as commerce, tourism, education and health, but the quantity and the
nature of the contents they generate make it a very difficult task. Due to such
challenging research problems and wide variety of practical applications,
opinion mining and sentiment analysis have become very active research areas in
the last decade.

Our understanding and knowledge of the problem and its solution are still
limited as natural language understanding techniques are still pretty weak. Most
of current research in sentiment analysis, in fact, merely relies on machine
learning algorithms. Such algorithms, despite most of them being very effective,
produce no human understandable results such that we know little about how and
why output values are obtained. All such approaches, moreover, rely on
syntactical structure of text, which is far from the way the human mind
processes natural language. Next-generation opinion mining systems should employ
techniques capable to better grasp the conceptual rules that govern sentiment
and the clues that can convey these concepts from realization to verbalization
in the human mind.

SENTIRE aims to provide an international forum for researchers in the field of
opinion mining and sentiment analysis to share information on their latest
investigations in social information retrieval and their applications both in
academic research areas and industrial sectors. The broader context of the
workshop comprehends Web mining, AI, Semantic Web, information retrieval and
natural language processing. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Sentiment identification & classification
• Opinion and sentiment summarization & visualization
• Explicit & latent semantic analysis for sentiment mining
• Concept-level opinion and sentiment analysis
• Sentic computing
• Opinion and sentiment search & retrieval
• Time evolving opinion & sentiment analysis
• Semantic multidimensional scaling for sentiment analysis
• Multidomain & cross-domain evaluation
• Domain adaptation for sentiment classification
• Multimodal sentiment analysis
• Multimodal fusion for continuous interpretation of semantics
• Multilingual sentiment analysis & re-use of knowledge bases
• Knowledge base construction & integration with opinion analysis
• Transfer learning of opinion & sentiment with knowledge bases
• Sentiment corpora & annotation
• Affective knowledge acquisition for sentiment analysis
• Biologically inspired opinion mining
• Sentiment topic detection & trend discovery
• Big social data analysis
• Social ranking
• Social network analysis
• Social media marketing
• Comparative opinion analysis
• Opinion spam detection

Authors are required to follow IEEE ICDM Proceedings Author Guidelines. The
paper length is limited to 10 pages, including references, diagrams, and
appendices, if any. Manuscripts are to be submitted through CyberChair. Each
submitted paper will be evaluated by three PC members with respect to its
novelty, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and experiments.
Accepted papers will be published in IEEE ICDM proceedings. Selected, expanded
versions of papers presented at the workshop will be invited to a forthcoming
Special Issue of Cognitive Computation on opinion mining and sentiment analysis.

CollateX collation workshop at DH2015

There are still openings for additional participants in the CollateX
collation workshop to be held on Monday, 29 June 2015 from 9:30 through
4:30 as part of the ADHO DH2015: Global Digital Humanities conference at
the University of Western Sydney. The workshop will teach participants how
to use the open-source CollateX collation tool to compare witnesses of a
text automatically, in a way that can be used to produce critical textual
editions and other types of comparative documents. Participants will learn
how to prepare source materials in any written script for collation, how to
perform automated collation using CollateX, and how to inspect and modify
the results. To register for the workshop please follow the link at
http://dh2015.org/workshops/. The workshop web site (still under
development) is accessible at http://collatex.obdurodon.org, and includes
instructions for downloading and installing CollateX prior to the workshop.
