16 March 2020, 12:11 –  Since face-to-face meetings are strongly discouraged, the centre meeting will only take place virtually.


On Tuesday 31 March, the virtual CLARIN Centre Meeting will be held, including:

  • A (virtual) centre committee meeting
  • Tutorials and thematic presentations
  • Task forces and ad-hoc meetings

⚠️ Due to the current travel restrictions for many potential participants, this meeting will be organized slightly differently than previous years:

  • For those who can travel, the face-to-face meeting will take place, but only on the first day. The dinner on Tuesday evening will go on as planned.
  • Remote participation via Zoom will also be possible. We kindly request remote participants to ensure they have a good microphone (ideally a headset or speakerphone) and a working webcam. Please also check our technical recommendations.
  • The informal taskforce meetings on the second day are cancelled, since these are less effective as a virtual meeting.
