HistoInformatics2021 - the 6th International Workshop on Computational
History will be held on September 30th, 2021 in conjunction with The
ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL2021). 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


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,

   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   Entity relationship extraction, detecting and resolving historical
   references in text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, figurations

   Handling uncertain and fragmentary text and image data

Full paper submissions are limited to 8 pages, while short paper
submissions should be no more than 4 pages (including bibliography).
Submissions need to be:

reveal or conceal their names in submissions. 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
