The CLARIN Annual Conference is organized for the humanities and social sciences community to exchange ideas and experiences on the CLARIN infrastructure. This includes its design and construction, its operation and use, data and services that it contains or should contain, research carried out with the CLARIN infrastructure, the relation of CLARIN to other infrastructures and projects, and the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure. The Scientific Programme will include oral presentations, posters, and demos. There is no difference in quality between oral and poster presentations. Only the appropriateness of the type of communication (more or less interactive) to the content of the paper will be considered.
