Call for papers
We welcome the submission of original, previously unpublished work on computational systems (software tools, web services, etc.) developed to analyse historical documents which have been made accessible to other researchers and scholars. Submissions of previously published systems need to present significant improvements and novel results on actual research questions using ancient written artefacts. These systems need to be freely available with or without open-source code on repositories like github, and sufficiently complete and documented to be used and tested.
Participants are encouraged to prepare a demonstration of their systems in addition to their oral presentations. This session will favour submissions that have been applied to actual use cases from manuscript research or developed in a close collaboration with scholars.
The accepted submissions will be presented in the session and published with DAS proceedings in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Instructions for Authors
The submitted papers should be up to 15 pages in length, and not currently being considered in another forum. This restriction does not apply to unpublished technical reports or papers included in self-archive repositories (departmental, arXiv.org, etc.) that are not peer-reviewed.
By submitting a paper to this Workshop all authors implicitly agree to the IAPR Ethical Requirements for Authors. Submissions will be managed via Easychair and undergo a single blind review by the members of the Program Committee. It is not required to anonymise the submission, but authors are welcome to do so if they wish. Please submit your paper via this link, and select "Special session on Computational Systems for Ancient Written Artefacts (CSAWA)" at the end of the form.
The submitted papers should follow the same policy and conditions of DAS 2022 conference papers. Papers should be formatted according to the instructions and style files provided by Springer. The LaTeX template for LNCS can be downloaded here. It is also available on Overleaf. You can download the LNCS Guidelines for authors.
All questions about submissions should be emailed to Dr. Isabelle Marthot-Santaniello and Dr. Hussein Mohammed.
