Meeting Description: 6th Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages: Beyond the Manual Channel

Non-manual features like facial expressions, mouth actions, head and body movements have all received extensive attention in the linguistic literature.

Recent technological developments allow sign language researchers to create relatively large video corpora of sign language use that were unimaginable ten years ago. Several national projects are currently underway, and more are planned. However, most corpus enterprises concentrate on annotation of the manual channels. This workshop aims to share experiences from current and past efforts. What are the problems that were encountered and the solutions created for recording, transcribing, annotating, and analyzing non-manual features? What are the linguistic decisions taken? The special focus of this workshop is on the coding of these non-manual aspects of signing as well as on tools related to this topic.
