Conferences and events (co-)organised by the GSCL with the aim of fostering the exchange of experiences on a high level by presenting foundational research in computational linguistics and selected practical talks by experts. These conferences and events also serve as a platform for presenting excellent junior research(ers) and the GSCL Awards for PhD and BA/MA theses.

GSCL Research and Tutorial Talks

The GSCL Talks were started in 2021 with the aim of bringing our community closer together via regular virtual technical and linguistic discussions. There are two formats: Research Talks, which feature invited talks on recent research topics, and Tutorial Talks intended for students and doctoral students. Participation links are sent out to members shortly before each meeting.

GSCL Research Talks

The GSCL Research Talks, started in February 2021, offer a forum for exchange about recent research topics for academia and industry. Speakers include senior-level researchers from academia and industry. Talks are held in German or English with each talk’s language announced beforehand. The duration of the talk is one hour including 30 minutes of Q&A.

GSCL Tutorial Talks

GSCL Tutorial Talks include 90-minute sessions on specific topics within computational linguistics that are not usually within the curriculum, deep dives into a particular research project, or introductory lectures to neighboring disciplines. The series also features interviews with experts on their personal experiences and presentations of industrial research. It is a forum for students and doctoral students to connect with experts, learn about internship or hiring opportunities and network with experts and fellow students from other universities.
