CLARIN ERIC is happy to announce the CLARIN Annual Conference 2020 and calls for the submission of extended abstracts. CLARIN is the European research infrastructure that makes digital language resources available to scholars, researchers, students and citizen-scientists from all disciplines, coordinates work on collecting language resources and tools, and offers advanced tools to discover, explore, exploit, annotate, analyse or combine such datasets, wherever they are located.

Conference aims
The CLARIN Annual Conference is organized for the wider Humanities and Social Sciences community in order to exchange experiences and best practices in working with the CLARIN infrastructure and to share plans for future developments. The programme will cover a  range of topics, including the design, construction and operation of the CLARIN infrastructure, the data, tools and services that it contains or should contain, its actual use by researchers, its relation to other infrastructures and projects, and the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure.

Conference topics
Special topic: Language resources, tools and services for interdisciplinary research

We especially invite papers for a thematic session addressing work in which language resources, tools and services from the CLARIN infrastructure support inter- and cross-disciplinary research. All research fields are welcome, such as history, performing arts, visual arts, linguistics, literary science, cognitive science, artificial intelligence and social sciences.  Examples of topics relevant to this session include but are not limited to the following:

– Theoretical and/or methodological issues related to the use of CLARIN resources and services in cross/inter-disciplinary research
– Research questions which have been solved with the support of CLARIN resources and services
– Novel research questions that could be addressed with the support of CLARIN resources and services
– New resources and tools that build upon/reuse CLARIN resources and services
