14:00–15:00Invited talk by Tamás Váradi (Research Institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary): Reaching out to the Humanities: The CLARIN Vision, Achievements and Perspectives
The CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure) project is a research infrastructure project that aims to provide language technology support to researchers, particularly in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The talk will present an overview of the CLARIN project, which is currently in its second year of the three-year preparatory phase. It will discuss the background, the structure and organisation of work, what the project aspires to achieve and what it cannot undertake at this stage. In particular, I will focus on collaboration with the Humanities and Social Sciences fields, presenting a survey of resources the CLARIN community already has and discuss some workflow scenarios that have been suggested. One instrument of exploring ways of collaboration with the HSS fields is to engage in joint work with selected projects. To this end, CLARIN has issued an open Call for collaboration with projects, which is just about to close at the time of the talk. We are seeking other ways of collaboration and building links with the research communities. Apart from providing information on the objectives and the current state of progress of CLARIN, the talk aims to initiate a dialogue with workshop participants so I intend to leave plenty of time for discussion.
