These are the forthcoming events relating directly or indirectly to the KorAP project:
- on July 8-10, we will hold a workshop on the perspectives for KorAP in Sopot, Poland;
- on July 16th, at Digital Humanities 2013 in Lincoln, NE, we will offer a tutorial on “Methods for Data Querying”;
- on July 25th, at Corpus Linguistics 2013 in Lancaster, UK, we will present a paper on “Robust corpus architecture: a new look at virtual collections and data access”;
- on October 1, we will host a workshop on “Perspectives on querying TEI-annotated data“, co-located with the TEI Conference in Rome, Italy.
Last month, with sadness, we said goodbye to Carsten, who has moved to another job and another country — best of luck, Carsten, and thank you for the wonderful job that you have done for KorAP!
We have also temporarily “lost” Elena, for an utterly joyful personal reason — we’re keeping our fingers crossed and waiting for the good news! Elena is scheduled to come back to work on the frontend and to provide her very valuable assistance in the development of ISO CQLF, at the beginning of October.
It is with utmost pleasure that I would like to welcome three new members of our team, who have joined the project at the beginning of June:
- Piotr Pęzik, who has taken it upon himself to develop an alternative backend (recall: KorA is a modular beast), based on a nifty amalgamate of Lucene and Neo4J,
- Nils Diewald, who has taken over a large part of Carsten’s backend duties together with a part of Elena’s frontend responsibilities as well,
- Joachim Bingel, who has co-operated with us in the past and is now returning to temporarily fill in for part of Elena’s role.
And since I’m on the topic of roles and responsibilities, let me mention the ongoing contributions of Michael Hanl, who works, among others, on the issues of authorization, data access, and user management.
Altogether, I’m honoured to be working (or, in Carsten’s case, to have worked) with such a splendid team — thank you, everyone! 🙂
