Call For Papers

First Workshop on Forensic Text Analytics (Fortan)
August 12, 2013; Uppsala, Sweden

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Intelligence and Security
Informatics Conference (EISIC 2013).

==Call for papers==

A community is emerging which tries to tackle new challenges in the research
field which Intersects language technology, forensics and intelligence.
Examples of issues which are particularly prominent in forensics/intelligence
are transparency, validation, exploration and interaction, depending on the
task at hand. The main goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers
from both academia and industry who are working on forensic applications of
language technology. The workshop provides a platform for discussing methods,
applications and resources, as well as problems and bottle necks.

The workshop invites the submission of papers which illustrate research,
projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant
advances in the following areas, but are not limited to:

* Methods and tasks:
- Document clustering and classification;
- Filtering and recommendation;
- Author recognition, profiling;
- Named entity recognition, fact extraction and event extraction;
- Entity linking, disambiguation of named entities;
- Relation and network extraction;
- Automatic summarization;
- Subjectivity, attribution and sentiment analysis;
- Anomaly detection and fraud detection;
- Process mining;
- Anonymization and pseudonymization;
- Search and retrieval;
- Machine translation;
- Detection of deception;

* Algorithms and characteristics:
- Validation and evaluation;
- Reproducibility and transparency;
- Real-time analysis and scalability;

* Language use and document types:
- Social media and web data;
- Informal language and personal communication;
- Case files and registration systems;
- Rare phenomena;
- Deceptive language;
- Document collection, corpora and annotation;

* Natural language, interaction and applications:
- Ontologies and knowledge management;
- Self-learning systems and interaction;
- Integrating text documents and structured data sources;
- End-user applications and visualization;


Submissions will be judged on novelty, impact, replicability, technical
strength, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. Papers may consist of up to
six (6) pages; final versions should take into account reviewers' comments.
Papers will be presented orally at the workshop. For producing the manuscripts
the authors should use the IEEE two-column style.

Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of EISIC 2013 (the main
conference) published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing

==Important dates==

Submission deadline: 29 April 2013
Notification of acceptance: 30 May 2013
Camera ready version due: 15 June 2013
