LT4HALA 2022 -- deadline extension --
Second Workshop on Language Technologies for Historical and Ancient
LAnguages @ LREC 2022

The paper submission deadline for LT4HALA 2022 is extended to April 15.

- START submission site:
- Place: co-located with LREC 2022, Marseille, France
- Date: 25 June 2022 (post-conference workshop)


LT4HALA 2022 is a one-day workshop that seeks to bring together scholars
who are developing and/or are using Language Technologies (LTs) for
historically attested languages, so to foster cross-fertilization between
the Computational Linguistics community and the areas in the Humanities
dealing with historical linguistic data, e.g. historians, philologists,
linguists, archaeologists and literary scholars. LT4HALA 2022 follows
LT4HALA 2020 that was organized in the context of LREC 2020 (proceedings: Despite the current
availability of large collections of digitized texts written in historical
languages, such interdisciplinary collaboration is still hampered by the
limited availability of annotated linguistic resources for most of the
historical languages. Creating such resources is a challenge and an
obligation for LTs, both to support historical linguistic research with the
most updated technologies and to preserve those precious linguistic data
that survived from past times.

Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- handling spelling variation;
- detection and correction of OCR errors;
- creation and annotation of digital resources;
- deciphering;
- morphological/syntactic/semantic analysis of textual data;
- adaptation of tools to address diachronic/diatopic/diastratic variation
in texts;
- teaching ancient languages with NLP tools;
- NLP-driven theoretical studies in historical linguistics;
- evaluation of NLP tools.


For the workshop, we invite papers of different types such as experimental
papers, reproduction papers, resource papers, position papers, survey
papers. Both long and short papers describing original and unpublished work
are welcome. Long papers should deal with substantial completed research
and/or report on the development of new methodologies. They may consist of
up to 8 pages of content plus 2 pages of references. Short papers are
instead appropriate for reporting on works in progress or for describing a
singular tool or project. They may consist of up to 4 pages of content plus
2 pages of references.

We encourage the authors of papers reporting experimental results to make
their results reproducible and the entire process of analysis replicable,
by making the data and the tools they used available. The form of the
presentation may be oral or poster, whereas in the proceedings there is no
difference between the accepted papers. The submission is NOT anonymous.
The LREC official format is requested. Each paper will be reviewed but
three independent reviewers.

As for EvaLatin and EvaHan, participants will be required to submit a
technical report for each task (with all the related sub-tasks) they took
part in. Technical reports will be included in the proceedings as short
papers: the maximum length is 4 pages (excluding references) and they
should follow the LREC official format. Reports will receive a light review
(we will check for the correctness of the format, the exactness of results
and ranking, and overall exposition). All participants will have the
possibility to present their results at the workshop: we will allocate an
oral session and a poster session fully devoted to the shared tasks in the

Identify, Describe and Share your LRs!

Describing your LRs in the LRE Map is now a normal practice in the
submission procedure of LREC (introduced in 2010 and adopted by other
conferences). To continue the efforts initiated at LREC 2014 about “Sharing
LRs” (data, tools, web-services, etc.), authors will have the possibility,
 when submitting a paper, to upload LRs in a special LREC repository.  This
effort of sharing LRs, linked to the LRE Map for their description, may
become a new “regular” feature for conferences in our field, thus
contributing to creating a common repository where everyone can deposit and
share data.

As scientific work requires accurate citations of referenced work so as to
allow the community to understand the whole context and also replicate the
experiments conducted by other researchers, LREC 2022 endorses the need to
uniquely Identify LRs through the use of the International Standard
Language Resource Number (ISLRN,, a Persistent Unique
Identifier to be assigned to each Language Resource. The assignment of
ISLRNs to LRs cited in LREC papers  will be offered at submission time.

Call for papers: goINDIGO 2022
International graffiti symposium
11-13 May 2022, Vienna (Austria)
@projectINDIGOeu (Twitter)

goINDIGO 2022 is an international, hybrid graffiti symposium organised in the
framework of the academic project INDIGO (, funded by
the Heritage Science Austria programme of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
INDIGO aims to INventory & DIsseminate almost 13 km of uninterrupted Graffiti
along Vienna’s dOnaukanal (Eng. Danube Canal) to digitally preserve and analyse
this unique socio-cultural heritage.

To achieve these aims and learn from others in the process, INDIGO has planned a
symposium which will focus on all technical, logistic, legal and ethical aspects
of documenting, archiving and disseminating graffiti.

goINDIGO 2022 wants to connect graffiti creators, heritage professionals and
graffiti academics to discuss various topics, among which:

* documenting: photographing graffiti, image and video formats, metadata,
monitoring tools;
* archiving: graffiti terminology, graffiti classification, thesauri &
ontologies, CIDOC CRM;
* disseminating: ethical and legal aspects of recording and sharing graffiti
records, visualisation tools, VR and AR applications.

The deadline for abstact submission is 11 April 2022. Abstracts of 250 to 500
words should be sent as a Word file (or similar) to
Abstract submissions must display the list of authors plus their affiliations.

Since goINDIGO 2022 aims to create a publication that reflects the current state
in the field of graffiti documentation/archiving/dissemination, authors of
accepted abstracts are expected to provide a full paper by the end of July 2022
(length and details of this full paper will be provided at a later stage). If
you would like your work to be included in this collective volume but you cannot
attend the symposium, please get in contact with us via
