CFP 2nd International Workshop on Computational History and Data-Driven 
Humanities
http://kdeg.scss.tcd.ie/2nd-international-workshop-computational-history-and-data-driven-humanities

This workshop is an IFIP Joint Event supported by the IFIP Working Group 
12.7 on Social Semantics and Collective Intelligence 
(http://www.ifip.org/bulletin/bulltcs/memtc12.htm#wg127). Funded by the 
Irish Research Council New Foundations scheme.

Scope:
This workshop focuses on the challenges and opportunities of data-driven 
humanities and seeks to bring together world-leading scientists and 
scholars at the forefront of this emerging field, at the interface 
between computer science, social science, humanities and mathematics.

As historical knowledge becomes increasingly available in forms that 
computers can process, this data becomes amenable to large-scale 
computational analysis and interpretation. what are the impacts for 
humanities, social sciences, computer science and complex systems? 
Perhaps mathematical analysis of the dynamic, evolutionary patterns 
observed in the data helps us to better understand the past and can even 
produce empirically-grounded predictions about the future.

We seek
* computer scientists and digital humanities experts to introduce 
technologies and tools they have applied in order to extract knowledge 
from historical records in a form that can be processed by computers 
without losing its meaningfulness.
* scientists working at the forefront of mathematical and theoretical 
analysis of historical data, to describe what is possible with current 
tools.

* Keynote speaker:
Prof. Harvey Whitehouse, University of Oxford, UK - Understanding Social 
Complexity through Data

*Important dates:
Full Paper submission due: 31 March 2016
Acceptance Notification: 30 April 2016
Camera ready deadline: 13 May 2016
Date of the workshop: 25th May 2016

* Topics of interest:
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Ontologies and linked data vocabularies for historical data
- Data curation for research in the humanities and social sciences
- Data visualisation for the humanities and social sciences
- Constructing big data for research in the humanities
- Text- and data-mining of historical and archival material.
- data-driven transdisciplinary research
- data-driven historical macrosociology
- data-driven cultural and social evolution
- data-driven economic history/cliometrics
- mathematical modeling of long-term social processes
- construction and analysis of historical datasets

*Highlights:
All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available 
through IFIP Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific 
libraries. Proceedings will be submitted for indexing by Google Scholar, 
ISI, EICompendex, Scopus and many more. Accepted papers after 
presentation and extension may be invited to be published in a special 
issue of Cliodynamics: The Journal of Quantitative History and Cultural 
Evolution (e-ISSN: 2373-7530) and indexed by Scopus.
