Calls for Papers: Text as Data Conference

New Directions in Analyzing Text as Data Conference at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

Northwestern University invites you to attend the fifth annual research conference on “New Directions in Analyzing Text as Data” that will be held at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management on October 10-11, 2014. This two-day invitation-only conference draws together scholars from many different universities and disciplines to discuss developments in text as data research.

The main purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from political science, computer science and linguistics to investigate new approaches to utilizing text in political science research. Text has always been a valuable resource for political science research. However, recent developments in digital archiving as well as breakthroughs in automatic language-processing methodologies from the fields of information retrieval, natural language processing, and machine learning are creating unprecedented opportunities for searching, categorizing, and extracting political information from text.
