The CLARIN Annual Conference is the main annual event for those working on the construction and operation of CLARIN across Europe, as well as for representatives of the communities of use in the humanties and social sciences. The 2020 annual conference with a programme of keynotes, papers, posters, demos and meetings will take place from the 5th to the 8th October in Madrid, in collaboration with LINHD Digital Humanities Innovation Lab and UNED, the National Distance Education University of Spain.
The categories of people welcomed include authors of accepted papers, members of national consortia and representatives of CLARIN centres as well as representatives from partner organizations. People who have been invited to attend the conference will receive registration information from the CLARIN Office or from national coordinators of their country. As an Observer of CLARIN, the UK can expect to have a number of funded places.
UK researchers in any language technology-related field are invited to submit papers once the call has been issued, but papers must demonstrate some relationship to CLARIN, even if it is only a discussion about how the tools and resources might be integrated with CLARIN in the future. Accepted papers will be published in the conference Book of Abstracts. After the conference, the author(s) will be invited to submit a full paper. Accepted full papers will be published in a digital conference proceedings volume at Linköping University Electronic Press within about 6 months after the conference.
The Call for Abstracts has been issued, with a submission deadline of 14 April 2020. More details can be foundon the CLARIN.eu website.
