Language Technologies & Digital Humanities 2016

 

Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana

September 29th – October 1st, 2016

First call for papers

The 10th Conference on Language Technologies will widen its scope to the field of Digital Humanities. Digital humanities is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, radically changing the accepted practices in humanities research but has so far lacked a national or regional event to present its results and encourage discussion.

Therefore the Slovenian Language Technologies Society (SDJT), the Centre for Language Resources and Technologies at the University of Ljubljana (CJVT) and the research infrastructures CLARIN.SI and DARIAH-SI will, at the end of September 2016, organise the conference “Language Technologies and Digital Humanities”.

The topics of interested include, but are not limited to:

 

  • speech and other mono- and multilingual language technologies
  • digital linguistics: translation studies, corpus linguistics, lexicology and lexicography, standardisation
  • digital humanities and historical studies, ethnology, musicology, cultural heritage, archaeology, and fine arts
  • digital humanities in education and digital publishing

We welcome submission that present guidelines, research, good practices, projects and results in these areas.

The conference will also include invited lectures, a student section, and round tables on topics connected with the conference.
