Scientific Events

The LaRI Research Group has been and is involved in the organization of several major scientific events in the sector of Computational Linguistics.

CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure) Annual Conference

It  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. It is organized for the wider Humanities and Social Sciences communities in order to exchange ideas and experiences with the CLARIN infrastructure. This includes the design, construction and operation of the CLARIN infrastructure, the data, tools and services that it contains or should contain, its actual use by researchers, its relation to other infrastructures and projects and the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure.

The 2018 edition of the conference will be held in Pisa. The CLARIN-IT National Coordination – leaded by Monica Monachini and formed of Paola Baroni, Riccardo Del Gratta, Alessandro Enea and Valeria Quochi – is responsible for the local organization of the event.

Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC)

It is now the major international event on Language Resources and Evaluation for Human Language Technologies. It aims to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art, explore new Research & Development directions and emerging trends, exchange information regarding Language Resources and their applications, evaluation methodologies and tools, on-going and planned activities, industrial uses and needs, requirements coming from e-science and e-society, with respect both to policy issues and to scientific/technological and organisational ones. It provides a unique forum for researchers, industrials and funding agencies from across a wide spectrum of areas to discuss problems and opportunities, find new synergies and promote initiatives for international cooperation, in support of investigations in language sciences, progress in language technologies and development of corresponding products, services, applications and standards.

Conference on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon (GL)

The goal of this international conference is to bring together diverse contributions from Theoretical and Computational Linguistics, Computer Science, Cognitive Science and Lexicography, which explore compositionality from the point of view of generative approaches to the lexicon.

Conference on Action, Language and Cognition

Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING)

Throughout its history (started in New York in 1965), this international conference has brought together researchers from across the field of Computational Linguistics. It has developed into one of the premier Natural Language Processing conferences worldwide and is a major international event for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing.

Workshops on Less-Resourced and Under-Resourced Languages

Joint ISO-ACL/SIGSEM Workshop on Interoperable Semantic Annotation (ISA)

Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL)

Workshop on Language Technology Service Platforms

Workshop of the European Language Resource Coordination

Workshops on Language and Ontology & Terminology and Knowledge Structures
