Summer School on Digital Humanities

From September 13th to September 14th
The primary objective of this joint initiative is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between young researchers from both universities in the fields of digital humanities and automatic text analysis.
Different domains are concerned by this event, including digital humanities, medical humanities, natural language processing, and machine learning, among others. Each team will present its research work and lead digital workshops focused on automatic text processing: authorship analysis, information and concepts extraction, identification of subjective language (opinions, sentiments, emotions, etc.).
Participants can provide their data: literary texts, newspapers, publications, patient interviews, etc.
