Organizing Committee & Speakers

You are invited to attend the
Workshop on the Development of Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) Resources
for Collaborative Data Intensive Research in the Language Sciences
to be held in conjunction with the Linguistic Society of America 2015 Summer Institute themed “Linguistic Theory in a World of Big Data”.

·         Funded by the National Science Foundation and the Cornell Institute for Social Sciences, this two-day workshop will be open to the public and free.

·         This Workshop will convene a multidisciplinary group of international scholars currently engaged in the technical and conceptual challenges involved in linking data for collaborative research.

·         Research in the field of language acquisition, including the acquisition of multilingualism, will provide a case study of urgent collaborative research needs in the field.

·         The purpose of this Workshop is to develop communication and advanced synergy between scholars with active research needs and those developing technical capacity to enable solutions through the various multifaceted demands of LOD, including both operative engineering advances and ontologies enabling interoperable language data.

·         A hands-on workshop to explore initial cyberinfrastructure endeavors will be available to pre-registrants.
