Call for Participation ================================================================ ACRH: Workshop on Annotation of Corpora for Research in the Humanities January 5, 2012 (co-located with TLT10) HEIDELBERG UNIVERSITY, Germany Workshop Website: http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/conf/ACRH10/ **** Register by November 18th **** ================================================================ Invited speaker - Gregory Crane, Tufts University ================================================================ ABOUT ACRH The workshop aims at building a tighter collaboration between people working in various areas of the Humanities (such as literature, philology, history etc.) and the research community involved in developing, using and making annotated corpora accessible. Addressing topics related to annotated corpora for research in the Humanities is an interdisciplinary task, which involves corpus and computational linguists (mostly those working in literary computing), philologists, scholars in the Humanities and computer scientists. However, this interdisciplinarity is not fully realised yet. Indeed, philologists and scholars are not used to exploit NLP tools and language resources such as annotated corpora; in turn, computational linguists are more prone to develop language resources for NLP purposes only. For instance, although many corpora that play a relevant role for research in Humanities are today available in digital format (theatrical plays, contemporary novels, critical literature, literary reviews etc.), only a few of them are linguistically tagged, while most still lack linguistic tagging at all. Historical corpora are also a case of special interest, since their creation demands a strong interplay between computational linguistics and more traditional scholarship. Over the past few years a number of historical annotated corpora have been started, among which are treebanks for Middle, Early Modern and Old English, Early New High German, Medieval Portuguese, Ugaritic, Latin, Ancient Greek and several translations of the New Testament into Indo-European languages. The experience of these ever-growing group of projects can provide many suggestions on the methodology as well as on the practice of interaction between literary studies, philology and corpus linguistics. ==================================================== CO-LOCATED WITH TLT10: The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories January 6-7, 2012 Conference Website: http://tlt10.cl.uni-heidelberg.de/ The TLT workshop series has proven successful in providing a forum for researchers in the field of Computational Linguistics who are experts in the design, creation and exploitation of annotated corpora and their relation to linguistic theories. ================================================================ REGISTRATION INFORMATION Registration for both workshops is open till November 18th.
