05 October 2020 to 07 October 2020
Online event

The CLARIN Annual Conference is the main annual event for those working on the construction and operation of CLARIN across Europe. CLARIN2020 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 for which their is a need, its actual use by researchers, its relation to other infrastructures and projects, and the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure.

The 2020 edition of the CLARIN Annual Conference will be organised as an online event. This year’s edition has been designed to attract a wider audience and get the most out of the innovative options that come with a virtual format: the conference will consist of special sessions and will be enriched with an informal programme.


Registration is free of charge but required using this registration form.  The deadline for guaranteed access is 25 September.


Among the innovative programme elements of #CLARIN2020 are the following:

  • The plenary paper presentation sessions will be shaped as moderated discussions and are aimed at fostering interaction between the participants and the authors. 
  • Interaction with the authors of the accepted submissions can take place in online poster sessions which give room for Q&A, debate and one-on-one chats on technical details with interested participants.
  • Slides, posters and recorded pitches will be available on the website prior to the conference.
  • Special sessions are also devoted to both PhD students and lecturers who use CLARIN tools and resources in their work.

 The conference features a keynote talk by  Dr. Antske Fokkens  (Faculty of Humanities.  Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

On 7 October there will be a panel on AI, language data and the role of RIs in the morning, and around lunchtime there will be a tech-infused improvised theatre and comedy show including an AI-based chat bot.
