AMICUS Call for Proposals
Motif Discovery in Cultural Heritage and Scientific Communication Texts (AMICUS) aims to bring together researchers
who have thought deeply about the use of Information and Communication
Technologies for the exploration of cultural heritage data, prominently
narrative texts, with an eye for advanced analysis of the discourse of
scholarly communication such as scientific publications. As both application
areas are part of the same important and difficult terrain, aiming at creating
or assigning semantic markup based on higher-order content agglomerates for
advanced access, a key goal for our planned workshop is to explore innovative
ideas and designs which represent parts of an emerging solution to the above
1st AMICUS workshop is a one-day meeting that will take place on 21 October 2010
in Vienna, as a satellite event of the CLARIN/DARIAH
conference, held at the same venue. The AMICUS workshop aims to overview
methods and infrastructure related to motifs, and to facilitate community
interaction and cross-fertilisation of research. Primarily based on invited
research papers, the workshop will offer a cross-section of ongoing work in
AMICUS and related projects, while we invite submissions in the form of
position papers and research posters to be exhibited and discussed by
participants as part of the workshop program.
The final program of the workshop is constantly
updated subject to the confirmed availability of our speakers and can be
checked at http://ilk.uvt.nl/amicus/amicus_ws2010.htm.
research posters, and position papers will be published in the workshop
posters are a well-known means of presenting applied research methods, data, or
other infrastructure, identifying specific issues and discussing them in
detail, or reporting on experiences in the field, studying results, or
reporting on application development. They will be peer reviewed by the
papers are essentially extended business cards - they ensure that other
participants have your name, contact information, and a description of what you
are interested in. You can use bulleted lists, expository text, images, or
whatever you like to get the idea across, limited to one page - they are meant
to be skimmed. Position papers are optional - you can attend the workshop even
if you don't submit one, but submitting one is a good way to get the right
of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
of content agglomerates for semantic markup from (folk) narratives and/or
or semi-automated semantic markup of (folk) narratives and/or scientific texts;
multilingual/multicultural corpora for the above;
of methods, tools and corpora (test collections) for the above.
papers (limited to one page) and posters (limited to two pages) for publication
must be in the standard ACM conference paper format.
submissions have to be in PDF and can be submitted to [email protected] .
for submission is June 30, 2010.
is free of charge, but requires registration.
