We hope to bring together researchers and innovators from all areas of linguistics, language research, and language technology. On the one hand, we want linguists and language researchers who are keen to imagine how future technologies may influence their research. On the other hand, we want language technology developers ready to learn more about linguistics and language use.
40 fully funded places are available for this Training School.
LITHME is an equal opportunities research network. We also strongly encourage applications from people with disabilities or other access issues. We will make all reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access.
Fees and reimbursement
There is no participation fee.
Accommodation, travels under 100 kilometres, and meals will be covered by the COST Action in a form of Daily allowance. The Daily allowance will be 120€/day for this Training school. Long-distance travels over 100 kilometers will be covered based on invoices. Also Visa fees will be reimbursed.
Note that the participants are required to pay for flights, accommodation etc. themselves. The reimbursement will be processed after the training school and can take up to a month. Expenses will be reimbursed in the end, but we are aware this condition from our funders can be prohibitive. We want to be clear about this gap so that nobody is compromised financially.
