Workshop: Working with Multimedia Data in CMC corpora

The International Conference on CMC and Social Media Corpora for the Humanities, which will take place in Mannheim on September 14th and 15th, will conclude with a workshop organised by the CLARIN Knowledge Centre for Computer-Mediated Communication and Social Media Corpora.

The workshop gives a basic introduction to methodological and technological aspects of working with multimedia data as part of CMC corpora. We will give an overview of the most important tools for manual transcription of audio or video, discuss the role of automatic methods (ASR, Automatic Speech Recognition) and look at standardisation in the TEI framework, including integration with solutions for written CMC data. Researchers of all stages are welcome, no special equipment is required to follow the workshop.

The workshop takes place on Friday, September 15th from 4:30pm to 6pm.
