1st International Workshop on Digital Language Archives LangArc 2021
ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries JCDL 2021
We are delighted to invite you to present your work at the 1st International Workshop on Digital Language Archives held as part of the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2021 online on September 30, 2021. The workshop will consist of live session(s) scheduled to accommodate participants from different time zones across the world. Session recordings and transcripts will be available for registered participants.
This interactive virtual workshop seeks to address the growing need. It will explore a broad scope of issues related to digital language archives -- digital libraries that preserve and provide online access to language data. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, educators, and students from around the world who are currently working or are interested in working in different areas related to collecting, archiving, curating, organizing, and providing access to born-digital or digitized language data, and evaluation of digital language archives. Workshop participants will interact and explore solutions to facilitating discovery of language materials in digital archives, effective and efficient access to them, and reuse of this rich data. The workshop will help foster collaborations among information professionals; library and information science, linguistics, data science, computer science, and humanities researchers; educators; representatives of language communities (including indigenous communities, refugees, speakers of under-resourced languages); and other interested audiences. The event is expected to become the first one in the series of regular workshops focused on the digital language archives.
Participants of the 1st International Workshop on Digital Language Archives will be invited to submit articles to the peer-reviewed journal The Electronic Library published by Emerald. A formal call for journal submissions will be distributed in September of 2021.
