Junge Sprachwissenschaft e. V.

Digital Methods in Linguistics

Our association plans a series of workshops on the topic of digital methods for the winter term.

These workshops will be mostly independent from each other, so that you can attend single workshops without requirements or prior knowledge.

Please note that most workshops are in German. Only the Workshop on Conducting Fieldwork will be held in English. 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.

There will be three blocks of workshops (data processing, data collection, and communication design). The topics will be the following:

Block 1: data processing

Registration

You can now register for all workshops using this form. Please let us know, if you would like to register for the workshop in English and have trouble understanding the form.

WARNING - We are currently experiencing issues with the registration form. Upon confirming your participation, you will receive an error message, even though your registration has been correctly processed. We are working on solving this issue. In the meantime, you should receive a confirmation email within approx. 24 hours. If, after that time, you have not received any confirmation, please send us an email and we will check whether your registration has been correctly processed.

The spots are allocated in the order of registration. 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.
