Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: VisLR aims at bringing together people from visual analytics and computational linguistics to discuss the potentials and the challenges related to visualizing language data and in particular language resources. Linguistics has a long tradition of visually representing language patterns, from tree representations in syntax to spectograms in phonetics. However, the large amounts and ever-increasing complexity of today's resources call for new ways of visually encoding a multitude of abstract information on language in order to assure and enhance the quality and usability of these language resources.
