--2nd Workshop on Computational History (HistoInformatics 2014)--

Held in conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Social
Informatics (SocInfo 2014), 10 November 2014, Barcelona, Spain

--------------Paper submission deadline September 1, 2014---------------

The 2nd International Workshop on Computational History (Histoinformatics
2014) aims at fostering the interaction between Computer Science and
Historical Science. This interdisciplinary initiative is a response to the
growing popularity of Digital Humanities and an increased tendency to apply
computer techniques for supporting and facilitating research in Humanities.
Nowadays, due to the increasing activities in digitizing and opening
historical sources, the Science of History can greatly benefit from the
advances of Computer and Information sciences which consist of processing,
organizing and making sense of data and information. As such, new Computer
Science techniques can be applied to verify and validate historical
assumptions based on text reasoning, image interpretation or memory
understanding. Our objective is to provide for the two different research
communities a place to meet and exchange ideas and to facilitate
discussion. We hope the workshop will result in a survey of current
problems and potential solutions, with particular focus on exploring
opportunities for collaboration and interaction of researchers working on
various subareas within Computer Science and History Sciences.

The main topics of the workshop are that of supporting historical research
and analysis through the application of Computer Science theories or
technologies, analyzing and making use of historical texts, recreating past
course of actions, analyzing collective memories, visualizing historical
data, providing efficient access to large wealth of accumulated historical
knowledge and so on. The detailed topics of expected paper submissions are
(but not limited to):

- Natural language processing and text analytics applied to historical
- Analysis of longitudinal document collections
- Search and retrieval in document archives and historical collections,
associative search
- Causal relationship discovery based on historical resources
- Named entity recognition and disabmiguation
- Entity relationship extraction, detecting and resolving historical
references in text
- Finding analogical entities over time
- Computational linguistics for old texts
- Analysis of language change over time
- Digitizing and archiving
- Modeling evolution of entities and relationships over time
- Automatic multimedia document dating
- Applications of Artificial Intelligence techniques to History
- Simulating and recreating the past, social relations, motivations,
- Handling uncertain and fragmentary text and image data
- Automatic biography generation
- Mining Wikipedia for historical data
- OCR and transcription old texts
- Effective interfaces for searching, browsing or visualizing historical
data collections
- Studies on collective memory
- Studying and modeling forgetting and remembering processes
- Estimating credibility of historical findings
- Probing the limits of Histoinformatics
- Epistemologies in the Humanities and Computer Science

Full paper submissions are limited to 10 pages, while short paper
submissions should be less than 5 pages. Submissions should be sent in
English in PDF via the submission website. They should be formatted
according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines. They must be
original and have not been submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions
will be evaluated by at least three different reviewers who come from
Computer Science and History Science backgrounds. The accepted papers will
be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). See
website for more details.
