About the CLARIN Annual Conference

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 humanities and social sciences.

After the successful hybrid edition of 2022, we plan to repeat the same format in 2023. The CLARIN Conference 2023 will be a face-to-face event, which will also be fully accessible virtually. The conference will take place in the historic city of Leuven, Belgium, at the heritage campus of the Irish College. The event will be hosted and organised by CLARIN , in collaboration with KU Leuven,  CLARIN-BE and the Instituut voor Nederlandse Taal.

CLARIN2023 is organised for the wider humanities and social sciences communities in order to exchange ideas and experiences within the CLARIN infrastructure. This includes the design, construction and operation of the CLARIN infrastructure, the data, tools and services that it contains or for which there is a need, its actual use by researchers, its relation to other infrastructures and projects, and the CLARIN Knowledge Infrastructure.

We are looking forward to welcoming all authors of accepted papers, members of national consortia and representatives of CLARIN centres, representatives from partner organisations, and anybody else who is interested in becoming part of the CLARIN community.

This page will be frequently updated with the latest information. Updates will also be communicated via the news section on the CLARIN website, the CLARIN Newsflash and Twitter. 


    The 2023 CLARIN Annual Conference will take place as a hybrid event, which means that two different types of registration are available: virtual and in-person. Please note that registration has not yet opened.
