International Workshop on Authorship Analysis in Forensic Linguistics (AFL-2014)

Authorship analysis is the process of examining the characteristics of a piece of work in order to draw conclusions on its authorship. This type of analysis finds its widespread applicability in areas where language is used as evidence. Forensic linguistics employs linguistic techniques to investigate crimes in which language data forms part of the evidence. The application of authorship analysis in forensics involves analyzing long fraud documents or terrorist conspiracy texts, through shorter letters, blog posts or emails, to very short texts such as SMS text messages, Twitter streams or Facebook status updates to check the authenticity and identify fraudulence. The objective of International Workshop on Authorship Analysis in Forensic Linguistics (AFL-2014) is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application of authorship analysis in forensic linguistics. AFL-2014 is affiliated with Third International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2014), Delhi, India.


AFL-2014 invites original and novel ideas pertaining the application of authorship analysis in forensic linguistics. Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at:


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Application of Machine Learning Algorithm in Authorship Analysis
  • Authorship Attribution
  • Authorship Clustering
  • Authorship Profiling
  • Authorship Verification
  • Bayesian Analysis for Author Characteristics
  • Computational Methods
  • Data Mining Techniques for Opinion Mining
  • Document Classification on the basis of Stylometric Features
  • Forensic Idiolectometry
  • Multi Lingual Analysis
  • NLP Based Analysis of Text Documents
  • Sentiment Analysis
  • Statement Analysis
  • Visualization Techniques for Authorship Attribution

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the indicated deadline. The accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Independently of the presentation type, all papers are included in the proceedings.
