From the preface:
This volume contains edited versions of papers accepted for presentation at the 17th World Sanskrit Conference in July 2018 in Vancouver, Canada. A special track of the conference was reserved for the topic “Computational Sanskrit & Digital Humanities,” with the intent to cover not only recent advances in each of the now mature fields of Sanskrit Computational Linguistics and Sanskrit Digital Libraries, but to encourage cooperative efforts between scholars of the two communities, and prepare the emergence of grammatically informed digital Sanskrit corpus. Due to its rather technical nature, the contributions were not judged on mere abstracts, but on submitted full papers reviewed by a Program Committee.
