Final Action Conference

The TextLink COST Action addresses Discourse Relational Devices (DRDs) in terms of resources, annotation models (including their comparability), and tools both for annotating DRDs and interconnecting annotated data. With a network covering research on no less than 20 different languages, written as well as spoken discourse, in a variety of genres and registers, and corpora that range from « in construction » to « fully annotated », the third and final Action Conference will be the occasion to take stock of the progress achieved, insisting on evaluation of discourse related resources and bridges between them, as well as opening to applications of the network results.
The meeting is open to everyone, both current members of TextLink and other researchers and practitioners working in the area.

Reimbursement: 

Please note that we will reimburse as many TextLink members as possible to participate in this last meeting. We therefore encourage you to make your travel arrangements and book your tickets as soon as possible. Be aware that if we do not have enough budget to reimburse everyone, we will spread reimbursement over as many countries and institutions as possible. As a consequence, we cannot guarantee at this stage that all members of a same team can be reimbursed.

Lunch during the conference will be provided.
