Call For Papers
NLP4DH 2023 & IWCLUL 2023
The Joint 3rd International Conference on Natural Language Processing for Digital Humanities and 8th International Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages will be held in Tokyo, Japan. The proceedings will be published in the ACL anthology. The workshop will take place on December 1-3 2023.
Submission deadline: October 1, 2023
Registration/publication fees: 0€!
The focus of NLP4DH is on applying natural language processing techniques to digital humanities research. The topics can be anything of digital humanities interest with a natural language processing or generation aspect. A list of suitable NLP4DH topics include but are not limited to:
-Text analysis and processing related to humanities using computational methods
-Dataset creation and curation for NLP (e.g. digitization, digitalization, datafication, and data preservation).
-Research on cultural heritage collections such as national archives and libraries using NLP
-NLP for error detection, correction, normalization and denoising data
-Generation and analysis of literary works such as poetry and novels
-Analysis and detection of text genres
In addition, IWCLUL solicits papers that focus on NLP methods for Uralic languages. Many of these languages are endangered and call for innovative NLP approaches that can deal with small amounts of data. A list of suitable IWCLUL topics include but are not limited to:
-Parsers, analysers and processing pipelines of Uralic languages
-Lexical databases, electronic dictionaries
-Finished end-user applications aimed at Uralic languages, such as spelling or grammar checkers, machine translation or speech processing
-Evaluation methods and gold standards, tagged corpora, treebanks
We solicit original and unpublished work related to digital humanities and natural language processing (NLP4DH) or NLP methods for Uralic languages (IWCLUL). Short papers can be up to 4 pages in length. Long papers can be up to 8 pages in length. Lightning talks submitted as 750-word abstracts. Abstracts will not be published or indexed.
All submission formats can have an unlimited number of pages for references. All submissions must follow the ACL stylesheet.
The submissions must be anonymous and they will be peer-reviewed by our program committee. The peer review is double blinded. Papers must be submitted using the conference submission system by the deadline. At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must attend the event and present their paper.
Accepted papers (short and long) will be published in the joint proceedings that will appear in the ACL Anthology. Accepted papers will also be given an additional page to address the reviewers’ comments. The length of a camera ready submission can then be 5 pages for a short paper and 9 for a long paper with an unlimited number of pages for references.
The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue in the Journal of Data Mining & Digital Humanities.
