CHR 2023, Paris, December 6-8

In the arts and humanities, the use of computational, statistical, and
mathematical approaches has considerably increased in recent years. This
research is characterized by the use of formal methods and the construction
of explicit, computational models. This includes quantitative, statistical
approaches, but also more generally computational methods for processing
and analyzing data, as well as theoretical reflections on these approaches.
Despite the undeniable growth of this research area, many scholars still
struggle to find suitable research-oriented venues to present and publish
computational work that does not lose sight of traditional modes of inquiry
in the arts and humanities. This is the scholarly niche that the CHR
conference aims to fill. More precisely, the conference aims at

   - Building a community of scholars working on humanities research
   questions relying on a wide range of computational and quantitative
   approaches to humanities data in all its forms. We consider this community
   to be complementary to the digital humanities landscape.
   - Promoting good practices through sharing “research stories”. Such good
   practices may include, for instance, the publication of code and data in
   order to support transparency and replication of studies; pre-registering
   research design to present theoretical justification, hypotheses, and
   proposed statistical analysis; or a redesign of the reviewing process for
   interdisciplinary studies that rely on computational approaches to answer
   questions relevant to the humanities.

We invite original research papers from a wide range of topics, including –
but not limited to – the following:

   - Applications of statistical methods and machine learning to process,
   enrich and analyse humanities data, including new media and cultural
   heritage data;
   - Hypothesis-driven humanities research, simulations and generative
   - Development of new quantitative and empirical methods for humanities
   - Modeling bias, uncertainty, and conflicting interpretation in the
   - Evaluation methods, evaluation data sets  and development of standards;
   - Formal, statistical or quantitative  evaluation of categorization /
   - Theoretical frameworks and epistemology for quantitative methods and
   computational humanities approaches;
   - Translation and transfer of methods from other disciplines, approaches
   to bridge humanistic and statistical interpretations;
   - Visualisation, dissemination (incl. Open science) and teaching in
   computational humanities;
   - Potential and challenges of AI applications to humanities research.


The 2023 edition of the Computational Humanities Research conference will
be hosted by the École pour l’informatique et les techniques avancées -
Paris . The conference will be a hybrid event with an option to attend in
person in Paris, virtually, or a combination of the two.


   - Submission deadline: July 24, 2023
   - Notification of acceptance:  September
   - Camera ready versions due: October
   - Conference: December 6 - December 8, 2023


Long Papers: up to 5000 words (ca. 10 pages, references, abstract and
tables/illustrations excluded). Long papers report on completed, original
and unpublished results. Brevity of argument is preferred. We welcome the
use of appendices or other supplementary information.

Short Papers: up to 3000 words (ca. 6 pages references, abstract and
tables/illustrations excluded). Short papers report on focussed
contributions, and may present work in progress.

Lightning Talks: Submit a 750 words abstract to give a 5 minute
presentation during a lightning talks session. This format can be well
suited for reporting work in progress, introducing ideas, preliminary
results, or focused question-answer research.

Posters: For poster presentations we ask you to submit an abstract
describing your work in about 750 words (references excluded). Posters are
well suited to present new or early stage research, for a corpus or
database description, or for detailed technical explanations and

Posters and lightning talks abstracts will not be published in the
proceedings, but they will be added to the website of CHR.
