Language Data Commons of Australia & Australian Text Analytics Platform’s Day of Activities before ALS2022
November 29 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm AEDT
The Australian Text Analytics Platform and the Language Data Commons of Australia are projects supported by the Australian Research Data Commons to develop infrastructure for Australian researchers who work with language data. This day of activities organised by the projects will give ALS conference delegates (and anyone else who is interested) the opportunity to learn more about this work. The day will include:
- an overview of the projects and the work to date
- reports on specific sub-projects
- introductory workshops on the tools and resources being developed
- a workshop on using Discursis, a tool for tracking topics in interactive use of language
- the opportunity to influence future work by exploring and providing feedback on the data interface which we are building.
The activities will be of interest to anyone who conducts research which includes language data, especially those who use or would like to use computational tools in their research. Participants should bring their own computer; no software is required beyond a web browser.
Catering is provided and therefore a registration fee is being charged for this event to partially cover the cost ($25 full rate and $15 discount)
