Summer school in winter

Due to the current situation, we invite you to a slightly different "summer school" during WiSe 20/21: take part from any place in the world and join our classes during the semester. And, if the situation allows, take part in our workshops at RUB.

Winter School 2021


Research is the beating heart of LDSL where new possibilities can develop through the connection of subjects and their perspectives.

To get an impression, take a look at past and present projects, resources published by the Lab and its members and, of course, publications.



To connect subjects and contents you also have to connect people. We regularly take part in events and also bring colleagues together at RUB.

When LDSL invites, this is where you can find information on current events. Of course you can also look up older events (some related to research projects).



Connecting knowledge and experience would not work without connecting people and perspectives. We are always interested in connections with other scientists and researchers who have ideas or want to be a part of ours.

Also we are of course available for questions from students - usually, the right person to contact is the one teaching a class you’re in or interested in. If you are looking for more general information, you can contact us.

For Students

We offer lectures at RUB for interested students who want to connect a background of linguistics and for example computational linguistics or data science. These often focus on topics in linguistic data science, computational linguistics or experimental linguistics. Additionally, we often take a look at current developments in special fields of interest.
