About the Workshop

The CLARIN 2024 Post-Conference workshop on Comparable and Interoperable Corpora of Academic Texts aims to bring together experts and enthusiasts from CLARIN partners to discuss the creation, management, and application of academic text corpora.

Academic texts, such as academic papers and theses serve as sources for sharing innovative research findings, theories, and methodologies across the academic community. Often accessible via open-source infrastructures, they create invaluable resources for comparative large-scale language research, including terminology extraction. Analysing academic texts from various disciplines also promotes cross-disciplinary insights and interdisciplinary collaboration.

The workshop will mainly focus on written text data; research on other data can be presented as well.

Topics of Interest

We welcome submissions on a wide range of topics related to the development and utilisation of comparable and interoperable corpora of academic texts, including but not limited to:
•    Design and creation of monolingual and multilingual academic text corpora
•    Linguistic annotation and metadata of academic text corpora
•    Standards and methods for interoperability and comparability of academic text corpora
•    Use cases and applications for academic text corpora across various academic disciplines
•    Ethical and legal considerations in data collection.

Submission Guidelines
