Training School: Methods and tools for the analysis of discourse relational devices
TextLink's first training school will take place in Valencia, Spain, from 18 to 22 January 2016.
The school will consist of a general session, with topics on coherence relations and DRD identification; cross-linguistic variation; cross-linguistic variation; corpus research, annotation theories and tools; and dictionaries/lexicons. There will also be hands-on practical sessions focusing on technical aspects and statistics. The school's speed dating session will allow trainers and trainees to talk about ongoing research, to discuss and ask crucial questions, and share insights and experiences.
The school aimed primarily at PhD students, but is also open to postdoctoral researchers, masters degree students, and others. Places are limited (40 trainees). In the event of oversubscription, priority for places will be given to PhD students and young researchers of the institutions participating in TextLink. A number of grants are also available.
