The 4th International Conference on Natural Language Processing for Digital Humanities – NLP4DH 2024

The 4th International Conference on Natural Language Processing for Digital Humanities (NLP4DH 2024) will be organized together with EMNLP 2024. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the ACL anthology. The conference will take place in Miami, USA.

The focus of the conference is on applying natural language processing techniques to digital humanities research. The topics can be anything of digital humanities interest with a natural language processing or generation aspect. A list of suitable topics includes but is not limited to:

Paper submission

We solicit original and unpublished work related to digital humanities and natural language processing (NLP4DH). Short papers can be up to 4 pages in length and long papers up to 8 pages. Both submission formats can have an unlimited number of pages for references. All submissions must follow the ACL stylesheet (Overleaf template).

The submissions must be anonymous and they will be peer-reviewed by our program committee. The peer review is double blind.

Papers must be submitted using SoftConf by the submission deadline. At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must attend the event to present the paper. EMNLP 2024 is in charge of registration fees.

Accepted papers (short and long) will be published in the proceedings that will appear in the ACL Anthology. Accepted papers will also be given an additional page to address the reviewers’ comments. The length of a camera ready submission can then be 5 pages for a short paper and 9 for a long paper with an unlimited number of pages for references.

The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their workshop paper to a special issue in the Journal of Data Mining & Digital Humanities.

Lightning talk submission

You may also contribute to the event by submitting a lightning talk. Lightning talks are submitted as 750-word abstracts using Google Forms. Lightning talks are suited for discussing ideas or presenting work in progress. The lightning proceedings will be published on Zenodo.
