Meeting Description: LaTeCH-CLfL 2017 will put in the same room two events with a similar research focus and with some tradition: the SIGHUM Workshops on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities (LaTeCH, and the ACL Workshops on Computational Linguistics for Literature (CLfL,

The LaTeCH workshop series has become a forum for researchers who develop new technologies for improved information access to data from the broadly understood humanities and social sciences. Since the formation of SIGHUM (ACL Special Interest Group on Language Technologies for the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities), the LaTeCH workshop has also been the venue for the SIGHUM annual research and business meeting. The CLfL workshops have focussed on applications of NLP to a wide variety of literary data. This joint event will bring together researchers from both research communities. We hope to broaden the scope, stimulate more collaboration and open new research perspectives.
