On this page you can find the additional programme elements planned around the scientific programme of the CLARIN Annual Conference 2020. These elements are meant to allow the participants the space to exchange expertise and ideas, to foster deeper embedding of Research Infrastructures in basic and applied research as well as university teaching, and to inspire further development of the CLARIN Research Infrastructure based on user needs.
The CLARIN Bazaar is an informal space at CLARIN2020 where conference participants can meet people from other centres and countries, find out about their work in progress, exchange ideas, and talk to people about future collaborations. The Bazaar will provide an informal setting for conversations with CLARIN people, and space to show demos on laptop computers, and distribute handouts and leaflets.
CLARIN Student Session
At the CLARIN Student Session, PhD students from CLARIN countries nominated by the National Coordinators present their work in progress. The aim of the session is for students to share the next generation of research supported by or contributing to the CLARIN infrastructure with the CLARIN community and receive feedback on their work from CLARIN experts. Before the conference, students are invited to submit a 500-word abstract about their work (to be published on the conference website) that clearly indicates a link to CLARIN. At the conference, students present their work at the poster slam session and at the student poster session. After the conference, students may submit a full paper to be reviewed for the post-conference proceedings. Travel and accommodation is reimbursed by CLARIN ERIC according to the reimbursement rules.
CLARIN Consultation Session
The CLARIN consultation session, which is open to all conference participants, is an informal opportunity for PhD students, early-stage researchers and researchers from SSH to discuss their work with CLARIN experts one-on-one or in small groups. Before the conference, participants who wish to take part in the consultation session will be invited to submit a short application which summarizes their work and highlights question(s) they would like to discuss with a CLARIN expert.
CLARIN in the Classroom
This is a new initiative open to university lecturers who have used CLARIN resources, tools or services in their courses to present their experience and suggest future key steps in order to facilitate further integration of CLARIN into university curricula. Before the conference, lecturers are invited to submit a 500-word abstract (to be published on the conference website) summarizing their experience in using a CLARIN resource, tool or service in their teaching. At the conference, lecturers present their work at the poster slam session and at the poster session. After the conference, lecturers may submit a full paper to be reviewed for the post-conference proceedings. A limited number of grants to cover travel and accommodation is made available by CLARIN ERIC which will be allocated to the best-reviewed abstracts.
