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 Conference:
Terminology & Ontology: Theories and Applications (TOTh2020)

November 24 & 25, 2020: Training Sessions

November 26 & 27, 2020: Main Conference

TOTh2020 will take place onsite and online: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the option for either physical presence or virtual participation is offered.

The TOTh Conferences – Terminology & Ontology: Theories and applications – bring together researchers, professionals and, more generally, all persons interested in issues related to language and knowledge engineering. The program includes accepted communications, an opening talk, and a poster session.

two days training session on «From text to conceptual-based dictionaries: a terminological approach» will be held just before the conference on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th of November.
A special Session will be dedicated to lexical resources and lexicography in connection with the ELEXIS EU project.

Young Researcher Prize will be awarded by the Program Committee during the conference.

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

June 17, 2020 at 10:30

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: https://www.sketchengine.eu/guide/manual-annotation-skema/.

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 (support@sketchengine.eu).

Online Live Elexifier Demo

April 8, 2020 at 13:00

via Zoom

As part of the Elexis project, we have developed Elexifier (link https://elex.is/tools-and-services/), 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.
