WORKSHOP IN DIGITAL HUMANITIES
Annotation of Metadata and Inquiries on Big Corpora

We intend to organize a practical, hands-on workshop in the field of natural language processing, focusing on computational lexicography and machine summarisation. The main activities will be centered on the following issues: how metadata are annotated on the CoRoLa platform, and how we make queries on the KorAP platform in order to find words, constructions, occurrences both in written and speech corpora, and work with metadata filters.

The participation will be based on a prior expression of interest via email at phssconference2018@gmail.com.
