Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: Our research communities are remarkably scattered. For an outsider it must seem obvious that information science (IS), information retrieval (IR), human-computer interaction (HCI) and natural language processing (NLP) go hand in hand. However, there is surprisingly little overlap between these communities. This workshop intends to bring together researchers from different streams and communities that deal with information access in the widest sense. The general goal is to foster collaboration between the different communities and to showcase research that sits at the border between different areas of research. The workshop will be a mix of keynotes, submitted research papers/posters/demos and a panel discussion. The workshop will be very interactive throughout the day.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with iConference’14.

Confirmed Keynote:

We are pleased to confirm that Professor Nicholas Belkin (Rutgers University) will be one of our keynote speakers.
