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 collaborations.

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.
