Meeting Description:

The 13th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in
Organisations, ICISO 2011, previously named International Conference on
Organisational Semiotics (ICOS), is the thirteenth in a series of
international events devoted to the latest research in informatics and
applications of Organisational Semiotics in organisations. The main theme
on this occasion is: Problems and Possibilities of Computational Humanities.

The aim of ICISO 2011 is to provide a focal forum for participants from
various domains of information management and information systems,
computational science, semiotics, humanities, and business and engineering,
being researchers, practitioners, or business and industrial professionals
and academics. The conference will enable the sharing and exchange of the
latest achievements both academic as well as practical. ICISO 2011
continues the effort of the international research community in the
development of the emergent discipline of informatics and its applications.
Particularly the application of informatics in new realms of research is
aimed at.

Call for Papers

Problems and Possibilities of Computational Humanities
13th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations
IFIP WG8.1 Working Conference
July 4-6, 2011 Fryske Akademy, Leeuwarden, The Netherlands

The 13th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in
Organisations (ICISO 2011) is the thirteenth in a series of international
events devoted to the latest research in informatics in organisations and
organisational semiotics. See www.orgsem.org for earlier conferences since
1995. In this 13th meeting we would like to place a bit more emphasis on
the humanities and organisational issues using informatics, computational
science and organisational semiotics as our guiding disciplines.

Conference Scope and Theme

The objective of the theme and field of Computational Humanities is the
application of computational science and information management to problems
that form the core of the humanities. Humanities focuses on communication
acts of the human mind and aesthetic value of these, including language,
music, art, literature, history, archaeology, and religion. Computational
Humanities forms the bridge between the humanities and computational and
information sciences. This emergent field of research is still largely an
unexplored territory. To shape the field, the activities of capture
(digitisation), data management and data analysis need to be performed. As
a prerequisite for performing these activities the following four topics
will be addressed:

* Pattern detection and recognition
* Modelling and formalisation,
* Semantics, interpretation and signification; and
* Data handling.

Format and Venue

ICISO 2011 takes place at the Frisian Academy (KNAW) in Leeuwarden, The
Netherlands, only two and a half hour train ride from The Netherlands' main
airport Schiphol.

Research papers presenting original work in relevant areas are invited.
Industrial and work-in-progress papers are also welcome.


The conference topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Computational theory, concepts, methods and techniques applied in humanities
* Semiotics and practical applications in business and organisations
* Semiotically motivated approaches to information systems
* Information engineering and complex systems for humanities
* Agent-based information systems and humanities
* Collaborative systems to support computational humanities
* Intelligent spaces and built environments for computational humanities
* Information utilisation and technology management for the humanities
* Digital content management and meta-dating
* Formalisation and modelling of descriptive and procedural knowledge in
the humanities
* Representation of meaning through crowd sourced intelligence and web 2.0
* Semantics capturing through serious gaming
* Modelling languages for the Dating Problem and for the frame problem

Important dates

Full paper submission: February 15, 2011
Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2011
Camera-ready version: May 15, 2011
Conference: July 4-6, 2011

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that
must not be published elsewhere and not currently under review for any
other publication. The manuscripts in English must be submitted in the
provided format (both as Word and Adobe PDF files) and may not exceed 8
pages. All papers will be submitted to the conference through the EasyChair
system. All accepted papers will be included in one proceedings volume.


The papers will be selected based on a peer review by three independent
members of the program committee. This review process will be anonymous in
order to ensure quality and to avoid prejudice. At least one author per
accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference.

Conference proceedings will be published by Science and Technology
Publications (SciTePress). As in previous conferences, all accepted papers
will be submitted to ISTP and EI for indexing.
