** Exploring Historical Sources with Language Technology **
* Results and Perspectives *

Monday 8th December and Tuesday 9th December 2014

Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, The Hague, Netherlands

The proliferation of digital resources in the Humanities urges both the
development of new technologies and the elaboration of new methods,
concepts, and theories by means of which researchers can query and
interpret large-scale textual collections. In the discovery of digital
resources language technology are certainly playing a pivotal role. The
goal of the workshop is to demonstrate how the application of language
technology has produced a new understanding of texts in different fields
of Humanities.

The workshop will bring together researchers who already apply language
technology, and those who would like to learn about the current state of
art in this new and evolving area. The organizers invite researchers
(especially early career scholars) who plan to apply language
technology, but do not already have the necessary skills and technical
background. The second main goal of the workshop is to enhance exchange
of experiences, disseminate know-how, and to explore potential future

This international workshop is the joint effort of two major Europe-wide
initiatives: CLARIN (Common Language Resource and Tools Infrastructure)
and NeDiMAH (Network for Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities).
NeDiMAH is funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF). Thanks
to generous funding from NeDiMAH and CLARIN, participation will be free
of charge, and funds will be available to reimburse travel and
accommodation expenses for a number of participants.
