Junge Sprachwissenschaft e. V.

Digital Methods in Linguistics

Our association is conducting another rendition of our workshop series on digital methods for the winter term 2023/24.

The workshops will be mostly independent from each other, so that you can attend single workshops without requirements or prior knowledge, but may also be combined according to your interests. The workshops are facilitated by people with substantial experience with the methods in question. This includes advanced PhD candidates as well as post-doctoral researchers.

Please note that this semester all workshops are in German. We have left the workshop titles in the language of the workshop in the table below, to avoid confusion. However, if you do understand German but feel uncomfortable speaking it, you are welcome to participate in any of the workshops and ask questions in English.


You can register for each workshop individually. You can find more information about the registration by clicking on the name of the workshop in question.

Registration modalities

The spots are allocated in the order of registration and by level of studies (BA > MA > PhD > Postdoc). Since allocation is conducted manually, it is possible that workshops are still listed as open online that are already fully booked. Should this be the case, we will, of course, contact you as quickly as possible.
