Special Issue of the Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities (JDMDH)
on HistoInformatics: Computational Approaches to History

Submission Deadline: January 31st, 2020

https://jdmdh.episciences.org/page/histoinformatics
###############################################################

Traditionally, historical research is based on the hermeneutic
investigation of preserved records and artifacts to provide a reliable
account of the past and to discuss different hypotheses. Alongside this
approach, historians have always been interested in translating primary
sources into data and in using computational methods to analyze them.
Nowadays, with the great wealth of digitized historical collections
available, historians can greatly benefit from the advances of computer and
information sciences techniques dedicated to the processing, organization,
analysis, and interpretation of such data. In particular, these new
computational techniques can help verify and validate historical
assumptions.

Within this context, the special issue on HistoInformatics - Computational
Approaches to History of the Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities
(JDMDH) invites papers from a wide range of computer science topics which
are of relevance for history, the cultural heritage sector and the digital
humanities in general. We particularly invite submissions of original
research papers on the following and related topics (but not limited to):

- Natural language processing and text analytics applied to historical
documents
- 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- Entity relationship extraction, detecting and resolving historical
references in text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 the evolution of entities and relationships over time
- Automatic multimedia document dating
- Simulating and recreating the past course of actions, social relations,
motivations, figurations
- Handling uncertain and fragmentary text and image data
- 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
- Epistemologies in the Humanities and Computer Science
- Computer Vision applied to historical image collections
