General information

  • Registration is now closed and was open before 15.12.2020.
  • Successful participation in the workshops will be credited with 5 CP for each course (however: how these can be integrated into a specific course of studies will be a matter between students and their student advisors/office/...).
  • Please note that you will communicate in English and the workshops will be in English.
  • You will learn and work in groups we will assign within the workshops and while communication will often be in writing, you should have some way to participate in discussions via Zoom (microphone & speakers). Video will not be required, you will not be recorded.
  • The topics and problems will be taken from Linguistic Data Science - basic knowledge in this area will be required from each participant. If you have no experience in linguistics, you will have to do some reading before the workshops start.
  • We will send out detailed information on the time and technical settings for each workshop to all who register. For now, you should expect this to be an intense learning experience - just as with a workshop on-site, you should expect to be busy between 10am and 6 pm CET (of course with breaks for meals etc) if you participate in both courses.
  • There will be no fees for participation from students.

Registration process

Our goal is to ensure that everyone in the workshops can rely on the members of their group having adequate knowledge for the class and the tasks they will work on together, so registration will be a 2-step-process:

  1. Any interested participant registered by email before December, 15th.
  2. Those who registered can later qualify for participation: Since the workshops will be online as well, there is no limit to the number of participants - those who qualify, will have a place in the workshops. If you are unsure about your abilities, we encourage you to register, and then wait to see if you qualify, rather than excluding yourself!
