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 area.

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 history
  • Knowledge extraction and knowledge discovery based on cultural heritage data.
  • 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 curricula
  • 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Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished work in the form of long, short papers, or poster abstracts.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 technical details, please see Call for Papers at http://www.flairs-31.info/
