About the workshop

Parliamentary data is a major source of socially relevant content, it  is multilingual and accompanied by rich metadata. Its distinguishing characteristic is  that it collects spoken language produced in controlled circumstances, which has traditionally been transcribed but is now increasingly released also in audio and video formats.

The ParlaCLARIN II workshop aims to bring together developers, curators and researchers of regional, national and international parliamentary debates that are suitable for research in disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The programme will include a keynote talk and 3 sessions where moderators and authors of accepted papers will bring attention to the most interesting aspects of their work, and discuss the current challenges and solutions and plans for future work. 

The 2020 ParlaCLARIN workshop was supposed to be held in Marseille (France), as part of the 12th edition of the Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC2020). However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the main conference is postponed, for this reason the ParlaCLARIN II workshop will take place in a virtual form.
