*** 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unpublished work in the form of long, short, or demo papers.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 see
