Call for papers for the 2nd International Workshop on Natural Language
Processing for Digital Humanities (NLP4DH 2022) · Please distribute · Apologies
for cross-posting

The 2nd International Workshop on Natural Language Processing for Digital
Humanities is co-located with AACL 2022 in Taipei, Taiwan. The proceedings will
be published in the ACL anthology. The workshop will take place on the 24th of
November 2022.


Submission deadline: August 25, 2022

The focus of the workshop 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 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

We solicit original and unpublished work related to digital humanities and
natural language processing. Short papers can be up to 4 pages in length and
long papers up to 8 pages. Both submission formats can have an unlimited number
of pages for references. All submissions must follow the ACL stylesheet. We
don’t accept submissions that consist of an abstract only.

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
SoftConf by the workshop deadline. At least one of the authors of an accepted
paper must register for the main conference and present the paper.

Accepted papers (short and long) will be published in the workshop 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 workshop paper to a special issue in the Journal of Data Mining &
Digital Humanities.
