CMDI (CLARIN Metadata Infrastructure) Tutorial

Monday, January 17, 2011 - 08:30 to 15:00

On January 17 CLARIN-NL will organize another CLARIN metadata tutorial at the Max-Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics that is meant to make people familiar with how metadata is created and handled in the CLARIN infrastructure.

The tutorial is meant for participants in the CLARIN-NL/EU projects that want to learn how to create CLARIN metadata. There will be demonstrations and hands-on sessions using the special tools that were developed for creating CLARIN metadata schemas and creating metadata for resources. Additionally there will be this time also demonstrations and opportunities to use newly available tools to search and browse through CLARIN metadata such as the new version of the CLARIN VLO (Virtual Language Observatory).

Registration is open until January 12th, via this link or the tab 'Signups' at the top of this page. You have to be logged in to registrate!

Contacts: Daan Broeder, Dieter van Uytvanck


9.30 Welcome & coffee
