2nd Call for Papers

Submission deadline: 7 May 2010

About the Workshop
With the advent of the digital age, museums, archives, libraries and other
cultural heritage (CH) institutes are gradually moving away from a
predominantly pen-and-paper based collection management; more and more CH
institutes are aiming to make their collections widely accessible to both
experts and laypersons. A first step in this endeavour is the digitisation
of existing data. Several large-scale digitisation efforts have been launched in
recent years.

A similar development can also be seen in the 'soft' sciences, such as social
sciences and humanities (SH), where increasing amounts of relevant texts are
being made available in electronic form, either being produced digitally, or
being digitised as part of efforts directed at digitising archival material.

However, information access should not be restricted to simple key-word
based search on digitised data. To truely unlock the knowledge contained
in CH and SH collections, it is necessary to develop novel technologies that
support the information and entertainment needs of individual users. Techniques
from artificial intelligence are particularly well suited to help users to make
the best possible use of these digitised collections. As information access is
often obtained via the (mostly textual) metadata level, language technology in
particular plays an important role. Other areas of AI, including knowledge
representation, multi-modal systems and user modelling, are also relevant.

Workshop Topics
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers on all aspects of
language technology, machine learning, pattern recognition, knowledge
representation, multi-modal systems, recommender systems, and other neighbouring
fields in NLP and AI applied to cultural heritage (CH), social sciences and
humanities (SH). We also invite contributions from the cultural heritage
institutes themselves in the form of use cases and usage scenarios. We thereby
hope to bring together both communities (NLP/AI and CH/SH) and foster an
exchange of ideas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Automatic error detection and cleaning of digitised data
- Data enrichment and linking
- Adapting existing tools to the CH/SH domain
- Knowledge representation, ontologies, metadata and data models
- Knowledge discovery and text mining
- Machine learning and pattern recognition
- Multi-modal and interactive systems
- Personalisation and recommender systems
- Text simplification, text summarisation, and (hyper)text generation
- Transdisciplinary research on CH and SH data
- User scenarios and use cases
