The meeting will include a special tour of Theatre archives in New York City. We are soliciting papers and project presentations that represent the full range of experience theatre scholars and practitioners have with Digital Humanities. We are especially interested in topics that: -- Introduce important digital humanities projects in theatre and performance studies -- Examine the theoretical implications of Digital Humanities for our research into theatre and performance -- Explore new methodologies in theatre research based on digital technologies -- Focus on digital theatre history and historiography -- Discuss best practices for digital humanities projects in theatre and performance -- Elaborate on innovations in academic curricula in theatre and performance studies inspired by the Digital Humanities -- Investigate the challenges of crowdsourcing or the use of "citizen scholars" in Digital Humanities research. Working groups are not required to address the theme of an IFTR conference but papers which enter into conversation with the 2019 IFTR conference theme - Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism- are most welcome. Abstracts (up to 300 words) on either a proposed paper or the presentation of a digital project will be accepted in English. Abstracts are due by March 1, 2019 [NEW DEADLINE], and to be submitted by email to email@example.com Notice of acceptance will be given in February. Please include the following information under "Equipment required" when you submit your abstract: -- All technical equipment needed to successfully present your project -- If you are not doing a paper, what kind of presentation are you doing? Monday, 15 April, 2019 is the deadline, for those whose abstracts have been accepted, to submit everything the Working Group needs in order to prepare for a detailed discussion of your presentation during the conference. This can include completed papers, outlines (up to 3 pages) for your DH project presentation or links to online materials. Please send this by email to both conveners: Nic Leonhardt: firstname.lastname@example.org and Doug Reside: email@example.com. This material will be distributed to all participants in our sessions in order to facilitate our discussions at the meeting. It will also be distributed to all long time members of our Working Group who may be unable to attend this conference, in order to keep them well informed. We look forward to reading your abstracts.

Call for Papers The purpose of the WEPIR workshop series is to bring together researchers from different backgrounds, interested in advancing the evaluation of personalisation in information retrieval. The workshop focus is on the development of a common understanding of the challenges, requirements and practical limitations of meaningful evaluation of personalisation in information retrieval. The planned outcome of the workshop is the proposal of methodologies to support evaluation of personalised information retrieval from both the perspectives of the user experience in interactive search settings, and of user models for personalised information retrieval and their algorithmic incorporation in the search process. Since the focus of the workshop is primarily on exchange of ideas and development of new research activities, only short paper contributions will be sought in the form of 2 to 4 page papers in the standard ACM conference format. Topics for contributions include but not be limited to: -- Task design for evaluation of personalised information retrieval -- Test collections for personalised information retrieval -- Evaluation metrics for peronsalised information retrieval -- Protocols for evaluation of interactive personalised information retrieval -- User modeling for personalised information retrieval -- Search algorithms for personalised information retrieval -- Submitted contributions will be selected for inclusion in the workshop on the basis of reviews by the programme committee Workshop format The topic of evaluation of the incorporation of personalisation within search applications and algorithms and their impact on user engagement and experience of search is currently underexplored within the information retrieval community. This is particularly the case from the perspective of comparative evaluation of interactive and algorithmic elements of personalised search systems, and the representation and exploitation of user models. To reflect this, the workshop will focus on establishing and exploring the principles working towards the outcome of a proposed framework. The workshop will have the following elements: -- Invited talk: Prof. Ian Ruthven of the University of Strathclyde will deliver an invited keynote presentation. -- Presentations of papers submitted in response to an open call for research and position papers. Papers will be presented as short oral and poster format. The number of oral presentations will be limited to allow for the maximum of time for interactive activities, with other papers being presented as posters. -- Working groups focusing on relevant topics for the evaluation of personalised information retrieval. These topics will be defined on the day, but could include experimental protocols, test collection development, and evaluation metrics. -- Consolidation session: integration of the activities of the working groups, and proposal of agreed framework or frameworks for the evaluation of personalised information retrieval Paper Submissions The workshop is accepting short papers from 2 to 4 pages (including references) describing approaches or ideas/challenges on the topics of the workshop. Submissions do not need to be anonymized. Submissions should be in ACM Standard SIGCONF format. LaTeX and Word templates are available at (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). Papers should be submitted in pdf format through the EasyChair system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wepir2019 no later than midnight Sunday 3rd of February, 2018 (AoE). Submissions will be reviewed by members of the workshop program committee. Accepted papers will be included in the extended CHIIR 2019 Proceedings and will be available via the ACM Digital Library. In addition, it is planned to index the WEPIR workshop proceedings with CEUR-WS. Authors of select papers may be invited to contribute to a journal publication which describes the outcomes of the workshop.

The Prague edition of the workshop will continue and push forward the discussion on language resources and tools for derivational morphology (and, more generally, on word formation) as started at the first DeriMo workshop (DeriMo 2017), which took place in Milan, Italy, in October 2017. DeriMo 2019 will provide an international platform for presentation of new developments in existing word-formation resources and for introduction of recently created ones. A debate is expected on all aspects of creation of these resources, from technical solutions to linguistic decisions on which word-formation processes and how they are modelled in the resource. DeriMo 2019 wants to cover modern as well as ancient languages and welcomes approaches with a potentially multi-lingual focus. Availability of appropriate tools is considered essential not only for the resource development but also for potential use of word-formation data in both Natural Language Processing and linguistic descriptions. Another goal of DeriMo 2019 is to bring the state-of-the-art approaches to modelling word-formation closer to current linguistic accounts of word formation. Presentations of any type of linguistic research into word formation are expected to contribute to a discussion on usage and usability of available resources and tools. Linguistic insights into the phenomena that are modelled in the word-formation resources may indicate directions of future research, whether with language-specific, cross-lingual, multi-lingual, or typological perspectives. TOPICS DeriMo 2019 aims to cover a wide range of topics. Submissions are invited for presentations featuring high quality, previously unpublished research, both completed and ongoing, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. In particular, the topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following: * language resources for word-formation either of individual languages, or with a multi-lingual focus, * representation of word-formation processes in the resources (models based on base-derivative pairs, paradigmatic models, or other representations), * enhancement of word-formation resources with other features (e.g. semantic categories in affixation, classification of compounds), * linking word-formation resources with other types of annotation (e.g. syntactic, semantic), * application of (semi)automatic methods in modelling word formation, * tools for creating, searching etc. of word-formation resources, * data-based linguistic research in any aspect of word-formation (of individual languages, with contrastive or comparative focus, diachronic perspectives etc.), * theoretical accounts of word-formation issues. INVITED SPEAKERS We are honoured to announce that Prof. Lívia Körtvélyessy (Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovakia) and Prof. Fiammetta Namer (Université de Lorraine, France) have accepted our invitation to give plenary talks at the DeriMo 2019 workshop in Prague. IMPORTANT DATES * Deadline for paper submission: 24 May 2019 * Notification of acceptance: 30 June 2019 * Registration open: 1 July 2019 * Final papers due (camera-ready): 15 August 2019 * Early registration closed: 22 August 2019 * The workshop: 19-20 September 2019 INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION We invite to submit long abstracts describing original, unpublished research related to the topics of the workshop. Abstracts should not exceed 5 pages (references included). The language of the workshop is English. All abstracts must be submitted in well-checked English. Abstracts should be submitted in PDF format only. Submissions have to be made via the EasyChair page of the workshop at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=derimo2019.
