Meeting Description:

2nd Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Literature
Co-located with NAACL-HLT 2013
June 13 or 14, 2013, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

The amount of literary material available on-line keeps growing rapidly: there are machine-readable texts from libraries, collections and e-book stores, as well as ‘live’ literature such as e-zines, blogs or self-published e-books. We need tools to help navigate, visualize and better appreciate the high volume of available literature.

Call for Papers:

Submission deadline: March 1, 2013

We invite papers on applying state-of-the art NLP methods to literary data. What characteristics of literature make it special? Is it, indeed, a unique type of language data? How should we adapt our tools to find meaning in literary text? What lessons from automatic processing of literature could apply to other types of data?

Position papers are welcome, too.

Topics of interest (suitably related topics are welcome):

- The needs of the readers and how those needs translate into meaningful NLP tasks
- Searching for literature
- Recommendation systems for literature
- Computational modelling of narratives, computational narratology
- Summarization of literature
- Finding similar books
- Differences between literature and other genres as relevant to computational linguistics
- Discourse structure in literature
- Emotion analysis for literature
- Profiling and authorship attribution
- Identification and analysis of literature genres
- Building and analyzing social networks of characters
- Generation of literary narrative, dialogue or poetry
