It was a great privilege to welcome Eveline Wandl-Vogt from the Austrian Academy of Sciences to RGCL this week. Eveline is a Research Manager from the Lexicography Laboratory at the Academy who came to RGCL to discuss possible future collaborations with members of the Research Group. During her stay, Eveline carried out a seminar on her research for members of the group.
Title: Computational Linguistics and Digital Humanities- Designing Joint Discovery on the example of lexicography laboratory @ ACDH @ AAS
Lexicography Laboratory (lexlab) founded in July 2015, is a research group at the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and draws on more than a hundred years of lexicographical tradition.
The group explores cultural diversity and applying open innovation in science methods; the research group is actively embedded into national and international networks, initiatives and collaborations.
In this presentation, the speaker will offer an insight into the strategies, policies and working topics of the research group in a nutshell. She will introduce the main ongoing lexicographical / lexical endeavours of the group related to 1) biodiversity and linguistic diversity, 2) non-standard language and cultural diversity (exploreAT!) and 3) biographical and prosopographical data (APIS).
Building on the main projects of the group, the speaker will propose a collaborative, challenge-based research approach, mainly focusing on topics related to computational linguistics, inviting the start of a joint discovery and exploration.
The presentation will offer insights into the process of the reinvention of lexicography and invites the Research Group in Computational Linguistics at the University of Wolverhampton to be part of it.
We look forward to the prospect of future fruitful collaborations with Dr Wandl-Vogt!
