Recent years have seen more and more applications of computational methods to the analysis of political texts. This has led to the emergence of different communities (one with a background in political / social science and the other in the areas of /computer science) which struggle to get awareness of the relevant work taking place in the respective other community.
The main goal of the workshop is to bridge this gap and bring together researchers and ideas from the different communities, to foster collaboration and catalyze further interdisciplinary research efforts.
To this end, the workshop will accept two types of submissions:
- archival papers describing original and unpublished work
- non-archival papers (abstracts) that present already published research or ongoing work.
The availability of both submission formats will meet the different needs of researchers from different communities, allowing them to come together and exchange ideas in an "get to know each other" environment which is likely to foster future collaborations.
Between the invited speakers to the workshop, Tomaž Erjavec from Jožef Stefan Institute Ljubljana will present the ParlaMint project.
