annDH Call for Extended Abstracts

We invite extended abstracts of 2-4 pages, excluding references, related to themes including but not limited to:

  • Annotation projects on concepts beyond standard linguistic categories such as metaphors, stereotypes, entities, causation of historical events, narratives, or philosophical reasoning
  • Methodology and best practices from linguistic annotation and evaluation applicable for DH annotation
  • Project descriptions and results that use POS/syntactic/semantic/pragmatic/sentiment annotation, etc. for DH purposes such as distant reading or visualization
  • Tools that support DH annotation concepts and goals, or tool specifications (i.e. wishlists: what do we need in terms of annotation tools?)
  • Annotation in different epistemological settings: deductive, inductive and abductive
  • Supporting / Defining the hermeneutic process of annotation
  • Automatic/semi-automatic/manual linguistic annotation that supports the hermeneutic process of textual interpretation
  • Bridging the gap between qualitative coding and creating re-usable training data for automatic annotation
  • Discussion of data types relevant for DH annotations

The workshop language is English.

Submissions should report original and unpublished research, overviews of existing approaches, or empirically supported position statements on topics of interest to the workshop. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings. Where applicable, they should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.

Special Issue

Depending on number and quality of submissions, and interest of authors, we plan to edit a special issue of full length papers based on contributions to the workshop.
