Meeting Description:

RaPID-2016 will be an interdisciplinary forum for researchers to share information, findings, and experience on the creation and processing of data acquired or produced by people with various forms of mental, cognitive, neuropsychiatric, or neurodegenerative impairments, such as aphasia, dementia, autism or schizophrenia.

The workshop will focus on research and the creation, annotation, description, modeling, processing, and analysis of linguistic and extra-linguistic data from individuals at various stages of these impairments and with varying degrees of severity. The data may be from various modalities and media, such as audio-recorded samples and transcripts of spontaneous spoken language; written content of social media posts; acoustic and phonological signals; eye tracking; keystroke logging; digital pen strokes etc. The workshop will facilitate the study of the relationships among the various levels of linguistic and extra-linguistic observations in order to identify, extract, process, correlate, evaluate, and disseminate various linguistic phenotypes and measurements and thus aid diagnosis, monitor progression, or predict individuals at risk.
