ACL 2013 workshop on
Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities

Organized by SIGHUM

August 8, 2013
Sofia, Bulgaria

Call for Papers

The LaTeCH workshop series is a forum for researchers who develop technology
for improved information access to data from the Humanities, Social
Sciences, and Cultural Heritage. Applications in these domains are rapidly
emerging, while they typically entail new challenges with respect to NLP
resources and workflows. Noisy, non-standard, or historical textual or
multimodal input, coupled with the scarcity of available digital semantic
resources in philology-specific domains require the adaptation of existing,
or the creation of novel approaches to (semi-)automatic processing tools and
structured resources. It is of mutual benefit that NLP experts, data
specialists, and Digital Humanities representatives working in and across
these areas get involved in the Computational Linguistics community and
present their fundamental or applied R&D results.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished work
in the form of long, short, or demo papers. For technical details, please

Topics of LaTeCH 2013
- Adaptation of NLP tools to Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and
Humanities domains
- Automatic creation of semantic resources
- Automatic error detection and cleaning
- Complex annotation tools and interfaces
- Linguistic variation, non-standard or historical use of language
- Linking and retrieving information across different sources, media, and
- Standardization efforts in research infrastructure and research data
- Text mining and text analytics (named entities, events, sentiment,
discourse, narration)
- User modeling, recommendation, personalization

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: April 26, 2013
Notification of acceptance: May 24, 2013
Camera-ready papers due: June 7, 2013

Background and organization
The 7th Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social
Sciences, and Humanities will be held in conjunction with ACL 2013 (August
4-9, 2013) in Sofia, Bulgaria. The workshop is a follow-up to LaTeCH 2007
held at ACL in Prague, Czech Republic, LaTeCH 2008 at LREC in Marrakech,
Morocco, LaTeCH 2009 at EACL in Athens, Greece, LaTeCH 2010 at ECAI in
Lisbon, Portugal, LaTeCH 2011 at ACL/HLT in Portland, Oregon, USA, and
LaTeCH 2012 at EACL in Avignon, France.

LaTeCH-2013 is organized by SIGHUM, the recently formed ACL Special Interest
Group on Language Technologies for the Socio-Economic Sciences and
Humanities, cf. The LaTeCH-2013 workshop
will also be the venue for the SIGHUM annual research and business meeting.
