Liebe TUSTEPer,

in Blaubeuren haben wir u.a. über das Thema 
"Software-Marketing" (T. Ott) gesprochen, also wie man den 
Bekanntheits- und Verbreitungsgrad von TUSTEP steigern kann.

Vielleicht hat jemand von Euch/von Ihnen ein Projekt, das 
mit TUSTEP durchgeführt wird und auf u.g. Konferenz 
vorgestellt werden kann. Ich denke hier insbesondere an den 
Punkt "Language  tools and resources for the analysis of 
older textual material".

Beste Grüße aus Trier
Matthias Schneider

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

LANGUAGE RESOURCES AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR PROCESSING AND LINKING
HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS AND ARCHIVES ?LRT4HDA ?Deploying Linked 
Open Data
in Cultural Heritage
Full-day Workshop organised in conjunction with the LREC 2014
Conference (http://lrec2014.lrec-conf.org/en/)
26 May 2014 Reykjavík, Iceland
http://www.c-phil.uni-hamburg.de/view/Main/LTforHisLangArhives2014
- SPECIAL TRACK on Digital Acquisition and Analysis of 
Historical
Newspaper Collections -
********************************************************************************
MOTIVATION:

Recently, collaboration between the NLP community and 
specialists in
various areas of the Humanities has become more efficient 
and fruitful
due to the common aim of exploring and preserving cultural 
heritage
data. It is worth mentioning the efforts made during the 
digitisation
campaigns in the last years and within a series of 
initiatives in the
Digital Humanities, especially in making old manuscripts 
available
through Digital Libraries.


Given the number of contemporary languages and their 
historical
variants, it is practically impossible to develop brand new 
language
resources and tools for processing older texts. Therefore, 
the real
challenge is to adapt existing language resources and tools, 
as well
as to provide (where necessary) training material in the 
form of
corpora or lexicons for a certain period of time in history.


Another issue regarding historical documents is their usage 
after they
are stored in digital libraries. Historical documents are 
not only
browsed but together with adequate tools they may serve as 
basis for
re-interpretation of historical facts, discovery of new 
connections,
causal relations between events etc. In order to be able to 
make such
analysis, historical documents should be linked among 
themselves, on
the one hand, and with modern knowledge bases, on the other.
Activities in the area of Linked Open Data (LOD) play a 
major role in
this respect.


A particular type of  historical documents are the newspaper
collections and archives. Newspapers reflect what is going 
on in
society, and constitute a rich data collection for many 
types of
humanities research, ranging from history, political and 
social
sciences to linguistics, both synchronic and diachronic, and 
both
national and cross-national. They represent an important 
resource for
analysis of changes at all levels which emerged in Europe 
with begin
of the industrialization period.


The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers 
working in
the interdisciplinary domain of cultural heritage, 
specialists in
natural language and speech processing working with 
less-resourced
languages as well as key players among Linked Open Data 
initiatives.
They are expected to analyse problems and brainstorm 
solutions in the
automatic analysis of historical documents, uni- or 
multimedia, their
deep annotation and interlinking.


The workshop is organised in collaboration with CLARIN 
(http://www.clarin.eu)


TOPICS OF INTEREST:
We are looking for contributions on original, unpublished 
work in the
topic areas of the workshop, including (but not limited to) 
the
following:
- Language  tools and resources for the analysis of older 
textual material;
- Adaptation of language technology tools developed for modern
languages to their historical variants; transcription and
transliteration problems and solutions;
- Named Entity Recognition for historical texts;
- Development of dedicated historical corpora and lexica as 
Linked Open Data;
- (Semi-) automatic extraction of content related metadata;
- Semantic linkage of heterogeneous data within digital 
libraries;
  - Linkage of historical documents with available Linked 
Open Data;
- Word sense disambiguation in old texts;
- Multilingual issues in historical texts;
- Applications concerning less resourced cultural heritage 
languages
such as Old Norse,  early Arabic, Ottoman Turkish, Old Church
Slavonic, older forms of Balkan languages.
A special track will be dedicated to the acquisition and 
analysis of
historical newspaper archives. Submissions fort his special 
track
should address topics related to following aspects:
Determining if, for a given language and period, digital (or
digitised) newspapers exist at all. Access rights to digital 
newspaper
collection for research purposes, and for publishing the results
- OCR solutions and limitations
- Extraction of articles from digitised archives
- Metadata annotation
- Showcases of successful humanities research projects based 
on
digital or digitised newspapers
- Publishing, sharing and storing results and by-products
SUBMISSION DETAILS
Submissions should be made through the system of the main LREC
conference. Papers describing completed work should be no 
longer than
eight pages. Papers describing work in progress should be 
between four
and six pages. We encourage in particular the demonstration of
prototype systems, and papers including reference to an 
existing
prototype will be offered the possibility to demonstrate 
their system
in a particular session.


Papers should respect the LREC formatting guidelines. Papers 
will be
reviewed by minimum 3 members of the Programme Committee.


When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be 
asked to
provide essential information about resources (in a broad 
sense, i.e.
also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that 
have been
used for the work described in the paper or are a new result 
of your
research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to 
share the
described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their 
reuse,
replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones.

Submissions for the workshop can be done using the following 
link

http://www.softconf.com/lrec2014/LRT4HDA/

Papers dealing with processing of newspaper archives should be
submitted to the "Newspaper" track all the other to "main 
track".
