2nd Heidelberg Computational Humanities Summer School (HCH19)

LiMo is co-organising the 2nd Heidelberg Computational Humanities Summer School (HCH19), taking place from July 15-19, 2019. The summer school is hosted by the Graduate School for the Humanities and Social Sciences of Heidelberg University.

The HCH19 Summer School offers one week of closely integrated lectures, workshops and panels which emphasize mixed methods and the multimodality of computational humanities. The lectures will focus on the following key areas:

  • Methodology of Computational Humanities: Mixed Methods in the Making
  • Computational Literary Analysis
  • Computational Humanities in the Cultural Sphere
  • Computational Humanities in the Social Sphere

Application is open until January 07, 2019. For more details, see the
HCH19 Summer School  website.

ESSP Workshop will take place in Minneapolis, USA, on June 6 2019

The Workshop on Extracting Structured Knowledge from Scientific Publications (ESSP) focuses on processing scientific articles and creating structured repositories such as knowledge graphs for finding new information and making scientific discoveries. The workshop will cover the following main topics:

  • Information extraction from scientific publications
  • Finding patterns and mining new information in knowledge graphs
  • Using extracted structured knowledge.

The ESSP workshop will be collocated with the 2019 Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL-HLT 2019), which will take place in Minneapolis, USA, 2-7 June, 2019.

For further information on ESSP and workshop program, please see here.
