We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special session on
Artificial Intelligence & Digital Heritage: Challenges and Opportunities
(ARTIDIGH 2020).

The special session ARTIDIGH 2020 is a very small and specialized event to be
held during the 12th International Conference on Agents and Artificial
Intelligence (ICAART 2020) in Malta, 22 - 24 February 2020. Our goal is to
select a consistent set of papers which provides the audience with a focused
discussion on the special session's theme. Papers can be submitted here:

Scope of the special session:

With the help of artificial intelligence-powered services and tools the heritage
sector is working towards the next level of access to and (re)use of digitized
collections. In recent years libraries, archives and museums have started to
apply machine learning and advanced knowledge bases to contextually enrich
digitized objects, audio-visual content and texts and to make these retrievable
in novel ways. In doing so institutions aim to increase the impact of their
collections among a growing and diversifying audience. This special session
welcomes papers that reflect upon, discuss and present the technical and
societal challenges (e.g. labour to produce labeled datasets, heterogeneity of
data, bias in training sets) digital heritage professionals and researchers are
facing when trying to capitalise on the transformative power of artificial
intelligence in the context of digital archive, image, and audio/visual
collections. Next to position papers, we are also looking for papers in which
project consortia discuss their approach and present first results.
Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Bias and digital collections
* Dealing with uncertainty, quality issues and collection gaps
* Multimodal collection access
* Geographic/spatial enrichment and access
* New ways of accessing collections such as associative and serendipitous search
* Network Analysis
* Natural Language Processing for the Heritage Domain
* Trend and change analysis
* Automatic collection provenance enrichment
* Reflections on the influence of AI on the heritage domain

Paper submission and publication:

After thorough reviewing by the special session program committee, all accepted
papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book
- under an ISBN reference and on digital support - and submitted for indexation
by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), DBLP, EI
(Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Semantic Scholar and Google
Scholar. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI
(Digital Object Identifier). All papers presented at the conference venue will
be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.

Dear Colleagues,

we are glad to share with all of you the Call for Papers for the second
Swiss DARIAH Workshop, at the University of Neuchâtel, 5-6 December

After the first workshop in 2018, we are organising a second DARIAH
workshop on workflows for the Digital Humanities. The aim of this second
meeting is to give the floor to young scholars working in Switzerland
and abroad on DH projects and to focus on technical aspects and concrete

Please find the call of papers (open until 01/09/2019) and the

PAThs: a digital archaeological atlas of Coptic literature for the study
of Late Antique Egypt

PAThs is an ERC granted project based at La Sapienza, aimed at designing
and publishing open access web-based tools to provide an in-depth
diachronic understanding and representation of the geography of Coptic
literary and manuscript production, specifically the corpus of literary
writings produced in Egypt between the 3rd–13th centuries in the Coptic
language. A draft of the Digital Atlas has been presented to the
scientific community, marking the summit of two years of activity by a
multidisciplinary team, including experts in Coptic literature,
language, philology, codicology, history of religions, palaeography,
archaeology and Digital Heritage.

AIUCD 2020: 2nd Call for Papers of the Italian Conference of Digital Humanities
"The Inevitable Turn: Challenges and Perspectives in Humanities Computing"
Milan, Università  Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, 15th-17th January 2020

Call for Papers

The AIUCD 2020 conference reflects upon the implications and significance of
computational processing of Humanities data.

What is the methodological impact of the application of computational methods to
humanities data? What consequences does it entail for humanities researchers in
terms of training? Is it still necessary to talk about (and make) a distinction
between "traditional" humanists and "digital" humanists? Is the term "Digital
Humanities" still appropriate or should it be replaced with "Computational
Humanities" or "Humanities Computing"? Is the computational dimension of the
research projects typically presented at AIUCD conferences that methodologically

While open to other topics related to the Digital Humanities, we particularly
welcome proposals on:

- statistical and quantitative research methods and their teaching applications;
- Data Science and the role of the Digital Humanities in the definition of new
- Information Science and Digital Humanities: meeting points and methodological
- cultural and social impact of humanities research that makes use of
computational methodologies;
- Semantic web technologies and Linked Open Data in the Humanities;
- models and tools for knowledge representation in the Humanities and in
Heritage Science;
- visualisation methodologies and technologies and their significance for the
Humanities and cultural heritage;
- Natural Language Processing methodologies and applications for the Humanities;
- digitisation methodologies and technologies for the creation, preservation,
and promotion of digital cultural heritage.
