Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) is a method for creating, sharing, and (re-)using language resources on the Web, and has increasing importance for the fields of language technology and natural language processing (NLP). Increasingly, researchers are rendering major linguistic resources, including annotated corpora, lexicons, databases, and ontologies, in LLOD-compliant formats that enable their exploitation in the Semantic Web.

The EUROLAN series of Summer Schools, established in 1993, provides comprehensive coverage of topics that are particularly relevant to the fields of computational linguistics and natural language processing. The goal of the 15th EUROLAN School is to bring together specialists, professors, and students in relevant disciplines as linguistics, natural language processing, and information technology to discuss principles and best practices for representing, publishing and linking linguistic data collections. Tutorials and hands-on practical sessions will provide a comprehensive introduction to the formalisms for representing linguistic resources using Semantic Web technologies as well as means to extract knowledge from language resources and exploit it using Semantic Web query languages and reasoning capabilities.

Specific topics treated in the school include, but are not limited to:

This edition of EUROLAN is organised with the support of NexusLinguarum, the European network for Web-centred linguistic data science (CA18209 COST Action). The main goal of NexusLinguarum is to support the study of linguistic data science, for which the construction of a mature holistic ecosystem of multilingual and semantically interoperable linguistic data is required at Web scale. This EUROLAN edition will train students, academics, and practitioners on topics that constitute building blocks in the envisioned multilingual and interoperable ecosystem.

Program

EUROLAN 2021 will be virtually hosted by two institutes of the Romanian Academy, the Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Bucharest and the Institute of Computer Science in Iași, as well as the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași. Tutorials coupled with hands-on sessions will be held throughout the week. The full schedule will be available on the school’s website soon.
To continue the EUROLAN tradition over almost three decades, which are well-known for the excellence of their academic programs along with camaraderie among professors and students, we will arrange for a range of virtual activities in addition to the online classes aimed at providing cultural experiences and discoveries and interaction among participants.



Registration

The registration form will be available here. EUROLAN 2021 will be free of charge for online attendees. If, after the registration deadline, there were more applicants than available slots, the organising committee will select participants on the basis of their background, experience, and affiliation in a NexusLinguarum’s partner country.


Grants

In the unlikely event that the pandemic will have subsided in February 2021 and physical encounters and travels will become possible, we will announce the availability of several grants to cover travel and accommodation expenses of eligible participants, supported by the NexusLinguarum COST Action. Please stay tuned to this School's pages.
