EASIER Autumn School

September 25, 2023 September 26, 2023

Autumn School: Sign language data meets data science – data science meets sign linguistics

The goal of the Autumn School is to generate expertise for under-resourced sign languages to extend the scope of EASIER to more European sign languages. The idea is not only to support people who already work with sign languages and train them in technological approaches, but also to train people who already work with in data science, language technologies, etc. in the handling of sign languages. Therefore, both groups will have a general input in the beginning on the subject that is new to them.

The subsequent sessions will discuss different topics needed to develop sign language processing, as well as a session where participants can present their own work and exchange ideas in a more flexible setting.

The workshop will be organized in IDGS, Hamburg on September 25-26 in English and International Sign.

Funding opportunity

With a total budget of 14,000 EUR, the project EASIER is offering support for up to 20 researchers in the field of Sign Language Linguistics and Data Science (and related) with no other funding availability: the support will be up to 700 EUR for each researcher and aims to partially reimburse travel expenses for attending the workshop on under-resourced languages. The support will be paid as a lump sum; however, it can not exceed the total expenses incurred for attending the workshop.

Deadline extended to Wednesday, August 30th.
