Individual proceedings items as well as previous volumes are also available from the workshop page.
The programme of the 3rd meeting of the workshop on Challenges in the Management of Large Corpora (CMLC-3) has been posted, with the open-content publication of the proceedings volume scheduled for the beginning of July at the latest.
The workshop is going to be held on the 20th of July as part of the Corpus Linguistics 2015 (CL2015) conference.
The second frontend, which in time is going to become the official one, is now back up, with improvements. It is only reachable IDS-internally, for the time being. (But it won’t be long!)
It has its own half-interactive tutorial built in, and many nifty visualisation features. Do give it a try.
KorAP is addressed in two publications from this year’s LREC:
- “Access Control by Query Rewriting: the Case of KorAP“, by Piotr Bański, Nils Diewald, Michael Hanl, Marc Kupietz and Andreas Witt;
- “Maximizing the Potential of Very Large Corpora: 50 Years of Big Language Data at IDS Mannheim”, by Marc Kupietz, Harald Lüngen, Piotr Bański and Cyril Belica [CMLC-2 book of abstracts].
In lieu of help files, which are still on the to-do list (they will be created after the final features of the system are in place), we have started a Frequently-Asked-Questions document.
The test version of KorAP is now open for IDS-internal access only, through the “demo” profile, linked right below the “Login” button, at http://korap.ids-mannheim.de/app
Please note that, for the time being, we can only serve a limited portion of DeReKo data, available to non-authenticated users. The preferred browser to use is Firefox. The frontend has also been tested with Safari. Old versions of Internet Explorer will surely not work well with it.
As you can image, at the moment we are aware of the most critical bugs, but we welcome all feedback, big and small. Bug report forms are available from inside the test version, by clicking the “Kontakt” link.
the KorAP Team
We are now in the process of establishing the internal address and the way to serve KorAP within the IDS. We should be done with the relevant details in the
The slides will also be published here, after we have addressed some of the issues that have appeared in the question period.
Piotr Banski (for the Team)
We’re happy to share the extended abstract that we have submitted for LTC-2013. We would also like to gratefully acknowledge the Organisers’ invitation to submit a related paper to a special peer-reviewed proceedings volume.
The presentation was given on the 8th of December, 2013, and the full reference is as follows:

We’re scheduled for two appearances in December:
- Nils and Piotr will be presenting a demo of the system at LTC-2013 in Poznań.
- Nils got invited to a CLARIN meet-up on “Stand-off Annotation and GrAF” in Cologne.
We’re currently busy loading the trunk/ with as much baggage as we can put together before the showdown…
