CLARIN at Digital Humanities 2016

Submitted by Martin Wynne on 26 July 2016

CLARIN had a high visibility at the annual conference of the Digital Humanities, which was held 11-16 July 2016 in Kraków. CLARIN was a sponsor of the conference, and ran an exhibition booth to highlight CLARIN activities and meet people, with more than one thousand attendees in total. It proved to be an excellent opportunity to meet not only researchers, but also many people involved in other infrastructure intiatives. More than a dozen different people involved with CLARIN in many different countries manned the booth at various times, and the space was also shared with colleagues promoting the Parthenos project.

Numerous interesting connections were made, including finding participants and speakers for forthcoming workshops, and arranging repository solutions for orphaned data collections.

Below is a round-up of all of the workshops and papers with which they are involved. Read more in the online book of abstracts.
