Most frequent questions and answers

When attending the physical workshops a computer will be provided for you, but a personal device can be useful.

Corpus building is an integral part of this workshop. Therefore, we ask you to bring a few text files of your own interest for your individual hands-on experience with building a corpus. These files do not necessarily have to be in English.

To visit the city of Prague, CLS INFRA cannot supply travel, childcare, or accommodation grants. However, the three days training can be attended free of charge – and lunch is included.

This is an elementary course for actual beginners. If you have any NLP/programming skills,  if you have ever built your own corpus or queried one beyond looking for a single word, or if you are well-versed in XML-TEI, this course would be too slow for you.

Our teachers have years of experience in teaching newcomers to the trade and will gladly guide you in making the most of the training. Please fill out our sign-up form so we can get a feel for your current ‘station’, and we’ll pick it up from there. Just send us a line at: Lisanne.van.rossum@huygens.knaw.nl.

If you do have prior experience with the skills offered in this training school, you might still have fun scrolling through the teaching materials or apply for a fellowship to pursue your individual research or teaching project with the on-site support by our CLS INFRA project partners

Due to the personalized and tailor-made nature of this workshop, there will be no public live-stream of the sessions. However, DARIAH campus platform will host training materials and recordings of plenary sessions post-event. Stay tuned for more!

NB: When signing up for the training school, you give permission to being recorded.

Lunch on all three training days is included, free of charge. There is going to be a buffet meal consisting of three warm dishes, one vegetarian and one gluten free, a salad bar and a selection of cold snacks.
