Digital Events

In a Research Infrastructure Project such as ELEXIS, community building is a key factor. A big part of community building happens during face-to-face events. However, when face-to-face events are not possible to organise or attend, we have to explore alternatives in order to stay connected and foster the community. For this reason, within ELEXIS we have created and planned a series of digital events of different types.

Online workshop

Virtual Workshop:
Controlled vocabularies and knowledge organisation for the digital humanities

July 12th, 2021: 10.45 – 17.30 (CEST)

organized by ROSSIO Infrastructure, Department of Linguistics / NOVA CLUNL (CLUNL) and Art Library and Archives of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (FCG).

This online workshop aims to exchange experiences and applications of controlled vocabularies for research and projects in the field of digital humanities, including research infrastructures, libraries and other cultural institutions linked to social sciences, arts and humanities (SSAH).

Among other subjects, it will be discussed topics such as the construction and management of controlled vocabularies for the knowledge organization in SSAH, its application in research infrastructures, memory and cultural heritage institutions, as well as methodologies, models, tools and theoretical approaches related to controlled vocabularies and the publication of controlled vocabularies as linked data, where the case of the ROSSIO Infrastructure will be presented.

The event will be free, but subject to prior registration here until the 9th of July.

The program can be found here.

Virtual Workshop:
Linked Data in Linguistics 2020. Building tools and infrastructures. (LDL-2020)

June 22, 2020; 15:00 – 17:45

June 23, 2020; 15:00 – 18:00

As LREC 2020 is postponed due COVID-19, LDL-2020 will not take place this May. Instead, the workshop will take place virtually.

The LDL workshop series has a general focus on LOD-based resources, vocabularies, infrastructures and technologies as means for managing, improving and using language resources on the Web.

Since its establishment in 2012, the Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL) workshop series has become the major forum for presenting, discussing and disseminating technologies, vocabularies, resources and experiences regarding the application of semantic technologies and the Linked Open Data (LOD) paradigm to language resources in order to facilitate their visibility, accessibility, interoperability, reusability, enrichment, combined evaluation and integration. The LDL workshop series is organized by the Open Linguistics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation, and has contributed greatly to the emergence and growth of the Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) cloud. LDL workshops contribute to the discussion, dissemination and establishment of community standards that drive this development, most notably the OntoLex-lemon model for lexical resources, as well as standards for other types of language resources still under development.

Online Skema Demo

via Zoom

Skema (stands for Sketch Engine Manual Annotation) is a new feature in Sketch Engine that allows users to label, annotate or categorize concordance lines. The labels are then used for sorting, filtering or calculating the number of concordance lines belonging to the same group or category. More information is available at:

While the generic Skema annotator is available to every Sketch Engine user, a more advanced version for corpus pattern analysis can be accessed upon request (

Online Live Elexifier Demo

via Zoom

As part of the Elexis project, we have developed Elexifier (link, a dictionary conversion tool that uses advanced XML parsing and machine learning techniques to help you convert your PDF and XML dictionaries into a standardised machine-readable format, such as the Elexis Data Model.

The tool is currently in public beta and have organised a live demo session. The recording of the first session can be found below.
