Call for Workshops and Tutorials

We are soliciting proposals for workshop and tutorials to be held on May 20, 2019 in conjunction with the second biennial conference on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK 2019) in Leipzig, Germany. Building upon the success of the inaugural event held in Galway, Ireland in 2017, this conference will bring together researchers from across disciplines concerned with the acquisition, curation and use of language data in the context of data science and knowledge-based applications.
