    FULL papers are invited on original and unpublished research on
    various aspects of Computational Linguistics and Digital
    Humanities related to Sanskrit (Classical and Vedic), Prakrit, Pali,
    Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit, etc. Accepted papers are to be
    published in advance of the WSC 2023 meetings in January 2023, or
    soon thereafter.

Scholars interested in participating in Section 19
    (Computational Sanskrit and Digital Humanities) should submit their manuscripts by email to with a copy to and  with "Computational Sanskrit and Digital Humanities NEW SUBMISSION" in the subject line.

These manuscript submissions will be reviewed by members of the Programme Committee
of the section. 

To prepare your manuscript for submission and to procure the relevant LaTeX style files, you may download the WSC2023 Section 19 Support Package and follow the additional instructions given on the WSC2023 Section 19 Website.
The deadline for submitting papers for consideration is March 31, 2022.

          + Prose order normalisation
          + Parsing
          + Structural semantics
          + Machine Translation
          + Automatic analysis of Sanskrit corpus

          + Software tools for phylogenic studies, intertextuality
            management, the establishment of critical editions, and other
            philological applications
          + Stylometry and authorship attribution
          + OCR recognition of ancient Indian scripts
          + Digital cataloguing of manuscripts
          + Digital font creation, rendering of phonetic features, etc.

      o Misc computer applications relevant to Sanskrit:
