Goal, Audience and Topics

The workshop will be a forum for presenting and discussing language research infrastructure activities in Northern Europe including the Baltic countries. Recent years have seen a number of large-scale national and international initiatives and projects such as CLARIN, DASISH, EUDAT, META-NORD, INESS, etc. These are aimed at promoting access to big data and enabling eScience in the area of linguistics, language studies, philology and related fields. Some of these activities have already booked preliminary results suitable for dissemination, while others are in the planning or initial implementation stages and want to exchange ideas, learn from each other?s experiences and synchronize activities. The Nordic dimension is deemed important in order to overcome local limitations, to stimulate regional cooperation, to secure interoperability, to build on previous Nordic research and to exploit common eInfrastructure solutions. The primary target audience of the workshop consists of everybody who is involved in the planning, implementation, population, operation, support or exploitation of language research infrastructure. Participants in relevant ongoing initiatives and projects as well as their user groups are especially invited to participate.

We call for contributions that address topics including but not limited to the following:

? linguistic web services, tool chaining and workflows

? innovative user interfaces to language resources

? cooperative linguistic annotation and documentation tools

? advances in search, filtering, mapping and mashups of language data

? data categories, pids and metadata for language materials

? ?enhanced? publications, citation and linking of language data to publications

? catalogues, repositories, archiving and curation of language data

? access, licensing, privacy and other legal, ethical and commercial aspects

? national and international networking and eInfrastructure initiatives


The programme is planned to have plenary oral presentations and a poster and demo session.

? Long papers (up to sixteen pages incl. bibliography) are invited for the oral presentation of important innovative results and in depth overviews of the state of the art.

? Short papers (up to ten pages incl. bibliography) are invited for the oral presentation of important ongoing work with tentative results.

? Demonstrations are very welcome, and must be submitted in the form of a short paper (up to ten pages incl. bibliography).

? Posters are also invited, and must be submitted in the form of a short paper (up to ten pages incl. bibliography).
