          Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence
Special Issue on "Mining the Humanities: Technologies and Applications"


                 **Extended Submission Deadline: May 15, 2015**

The nature of humanistic data can be multimodal, semantically heterogeneous, dynamic, time and space-dependent, and highly complicated. 
Translating humanistic information, e.g., behaviour, state of mind, artistic creation, linguistic utterance, learning and genomic information into numerical or categorical low-level data is a significant challenge on its own. 
New techniques, appropriate to deal with this type of data, need to be proposed and existing ones adapted to its special characteristics. 
The purpose of this special issue is to bring together interdisciplinary approaches that focus on the application of innovative as well as existing data matching, fusion and mining and knowledge discovery and management techniques (like decision rules, decision trees, association rules, ontologies and alignments, clustering, filtering, learning, classifier systems, neural networks, support vector machines, pre-processing, post processing, feature selection, visualization techniques) to data derived from all areas of Humanistic Sciences, e.g., linguistic, historical, behavioural, psychological, artistic, musical, educational, social, etc.. 
Research in this area is important to combine the fields of semantics and knowledge engineering within artificial intelligence framework, mainly because of the overwhelming amount and different types of disseminated information. 
High quality contributions addressing related theoretical and practical aspects are expected. 
In this special issue, we solicit original papers that tackle challenges or issues relating to exploit related technologies and applications. 
The main goal is to collect articles reporting the latest advances on the technologies, algorithms, models, standards, and applications in such a field.

Papers submission
All manuscripts should follow the submission guidelines available at the journal's web-site (http://ees.elsevier.com/eaai). During the submission process, please select the "SI: Mining the Humanities" as article type. Prospective authors are encouraged to indicate their interests any time before the submission deadline. After submitting a paper, please also inform guest editors by e-mail about the specific paper ID assigned by the submission system. If a submission is based on a prior publication in a workshop or conference, the journal submission must involve substantial advance (a minimum of 60%) in conceptual terms as well as in exposition (e.g., more comprehensive testing/evaluation/validation or additional applications/usage). 

All submissions and inquiries regarding the special issue should be directed to the attention of the Guest Editors:
