The 5th Workshop on Computational History (HistoInformatics 2019)

To be held in conjunction with the 23rd International Conference on Theory
and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL2019:
in Oslo on September 12th, 2019.

NEW: Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit to a
special issue on HistoInformatics for the Journal of Data Mining and
Digital Humanities!!

The HistoInformatics workshop series brings together researchers in
the historical disciplines, computer science and associated disciplines
as well as the cultural heritage sector. Historians, like other
humanists, show keen interests in computational approaches to the study
and processing of digitized sources (usually text, images, audio).
In computer science, experimental tools and methods stand the challenge
to be validated regarding their relevance for real-world questions
and applications. The HistoInformatics workshop series is designed to
bring researchers in both fields together, to discuss best practices as
well as possible future collaborations.

HistoInformatics workshops took place four times in the past. The
first one, HistoInformatics2013, was held in conjunction with the
5th International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo2013) in
Kyoto, Japan in 2013. The second workshop, HistoInformatics2014, took place
at the same conference (SocInfo2014) in the following year in
Barcelona. The third, HistoInformatics2016 was at Digital Humanities
2016 conference in Krakow, Poland, while the fourth one,
HistoInformatics2017 was held in conjunction with CIKM2017 International
Conference on Knowledge Management in Singapore.

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.

**Themes and Topics**

We invite papers from a wide range of topics which are of relevance
for history, the cultural heritage sector and the humanities in general.
Besides original research papers, we also invite submissions of diverse
types including position papers, project descriptions, or demo type papers.
The workshop targets researchers who work on the intersections of history
and computer science. The papers on the following and related topics (but
not limited to) are especially welcome:

   * Natural language processing and text analytics applied to historical
   * Analysis of longitudinal document collections
   * Time Series Analysis and Survival Analysis
   * Search and retrieval in document archives and historical collections,
associative search
   * Causal relationship discovery based on historical resources
   * Named entity recognition and disambiguation
   * Entity relationship extraction, detecting and resolving historical
references in text
   * Finding analogical entities over time
   * Network Analysis
   * Computational linguistics for old texts
   * Analysis of language change over time
   * Modelling evolution of entities and relationships over time
   * Automatic multimedia document dating
   * Simulating and recreating the past course of actions, social
relations, motivations
   * Handling uncertain and fragmentary text and image data
   * Mining Wikipedia for historical data
   * OCR and transcription old text
   * 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
   * Epistemologies in the Humanities and Computer Science
   * Computer Vision applied to historical image collections

**Important Dates**

   * Paper submission deadline: 1st July 2019 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)
   * Notification of acceptance: 25th July 2019
   * Camera ready copy deadline: 30th July 2019
   * Workshop date: 13th September 2019 (tentative)

**Submission Information**

Full paper submissions are limited to *10 pages*, while short
paper submissions should be less than *5 pages *(including
bibliography). Submissions need to be:

   * formatted according to
   * original and have not been submitted for publication elsewhere.
   * submitted in English in PDF format at

Submissions will be evaluated by at least three different reviewers
with backgrounds in Computer Science and History. The accepted papers will
be published on _*CEUR Workshop Proceedings*_ <>. Presenters
and participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs.

Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit to a special
issue on HistoInformatics for the Journal of Data Mining and Digital
