        Subject: Computational Archival Science Workshop at IEEE Big Data 2019 - call for papers

Computational Archival Science (CAS) Workshop #4 
at IEEE Big Data 2019 (http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2019/)
Los Angeles - 
Call for papers

The organizers of the Computational Archival Science (CAS) Workshop at IEEE Big
Data 2019 have issued a formal call for papers. This is the 4th workshop at 
IEEE Big Data addressing ComputationalArchival Science, following on from 
workshops in 2016 (D.C.), 2017 (Boston), and 2018 (Seattle). All papers accepted 
for the workshop will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by the 
IEEE Computer Society Press, made available at the conference, which takes place 
Dec. 9 - 12, 2019 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

This day-long workshop will explore the conjunction (and its consequences) of
emerging methods and technologies around big data with archival practice and new
forms of analysis and historical, social, scientific, and cultural research
engagement with archives. We aim to identify and evaluate current trends,
requirements, and potential in these areas, to examine the new questions that
they can provoke, and to help determine possible research agendas for the
evolution of computational archival science in the coming years. At the same
time, we will address the questions and concerns scholarship is raising about
the interpretation of 'big data' and the uses to which it is put, in
particular appraising the challenges of producing quality - meaning, knowledge
and value - from quantity, tracing data and analytic provenance across complex
'big data' platforms and knowledge production ecosystems, and addressing
data privacy issues.

Important dates:

  *   Oct 11, 2019 [updated]: Due date for full workshop papers submission
  *   Oct 22, 2019: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
  *   Nov 10, 2019: Camera-ready version of accepted papers
  *   Dec 9 - 12, 2019: Workshop [exact date TBD]
