DELAD Workshop 2024

DELAD/CLARIN workshop at the ICL conference Poznan

11 -12 September 2024

DELAD is an initiative that facilitates the sharing of corpora of speech of individuals with communication disorders (CSD) among researchers. We do this in a GDPR compliant way and at secure repositories in the CLARIN infrastructure. See our website 

DELAD regularly organises workshops around the themes:

  • Guidelines for collecting and sharing CSD
  • Ethics and legal aspects
  • Levels of anonymisation
  • Layered access of data
  • Integration of CSD in the CLARIN infrastructure
  • Formats
  • Relevant metadata

We are organising our next workshop in conjunction with the ICL Conference in Poznan in 2024: This will be a hybrid workshop held on 11th  and 12th September 2024 as a lunch to lunch meeting.  

We invite researchers working with CSD to present their work, and address their data sharing methods including any obstacles encountered.

Among others, the programme features presentations from DELAD representatives about sharing CSD via DELAD and some latest updates, including a new CLARIN Resource Family page for corpora with communication disorders (see for other examples of resource families). Other topics are related to metadata deemed relevant for making such datasets findable and a panel discussion about the role that Large Language Models (such as ChatGPT) can play in our research.

The workshop is sponsored by CLARIN ERIC. Selected contributions will receive remuneration for travel and subsistence costs via CLARIN funding.
