The Digital Humanities is an emerging field of research, the term itself
having only been coined in 2004. Notwithstanding the fact that research in
this area is quite new, the digital humanities have been flourishing at an
unprecedented rate. In recent years, whether in Europe, America, Asia or
Taiwan, various research institutes and teams dedicated to research and
development in the digital humanities have been established. This
demonstrates the high level of interest in and importance attached to this
field by the community.

The core concept of the field of digital humanities is the application of
modern digital technologies to the disciplines of the traditional
humanities, in order to overcome the limitations of traditional research
methodologies. This combination of knowledge and technology, in an
interdisciplinary manner, is unachievable in any single area. The
development of the field of digital humanities is in fact indissociable
from the progress of new digital technologies. These new technologies not
only provide new methods of data analysis, but can also be used to create
new types of digital resources.

In recent years, major breakthroughs have been made in the field of
artificial intelligence. Various types of A.I. technologies have gradually
evolved from theoretical speculation into concrete reality with practical
applications, with remarkable results. However, to answer what the
intelligence is makes A.I. deeply related to humanities. For example,
Natural Language Processing technology in A.I. assembles an important
subdomain of linguistics — computational linguistics. Besides, A.I.
technologies which mimic the structure of human intelligence, such as the
Semantic Web, Ontology, the Knowledge Graph, Linked Open Data, are based on
the theory of ontology in philosophy.

What kind of applications and breakthroughs can these digital technologies
bring to the digital humanities? How should humanities scholars view the
results of an artificial intelligence based on digital resources? Compared
to traditional humanities studies which only consider a limited corpus of
text, artificial intelligence can process a large body of data, with the
exception of a limited number of research methods. In the last analysis, do
these new technologies provide more help for the study of the humanities,
or are their results unconvincing? All these topics are subjects this
conferences seeks to examine and discuss.

Given the growth of the field of the digital humanities, this conference
will continue over the years to research every facet of the digital
humanities, but will also include the topic of ‘Facing the Era of AI+DH’ as
its theme. We invite scholars and experts, at home and abroad, to
participate in this session, and look forward to creating new milestones in
digital studies through dialog and exchange.

*Topics of Interest*

We invite submissions of abstracts relating (but not limited) to the

   advance humanities studies (including digital media, data mining, software
   design, and modeling, etc.).
   - Applications of text mining, social network analysis, visualization
   and graphics.
   - Interdisciplinary research and humanities research in literature
   studies, linguistics, culture, history, etc., conducted with digital data
   and technology.
   - Digital Humanities Theory and Epistemology
   - Impact of digital humanities on humanities education.
   - Innovative forms of digital arts such as music, film and theatre; and
   digital applications such as digital design, virtual reality, games and new
   - Other DH-related topics.

*Submission Guidelines*

   - Submission of a single paper abstract, poster abstract, or a panel
   proposal is welcomed.
