Proceedings of the LREC Workshop ‘VisLR II: Visualization as Added Value in the Development, Use and Evaluation of Language Resources’
MetadataShow full item record
This workshop aims at providing a follow-up forum to the successful first VisLR workshop at LREC2014, which addresses visualization designers and users from computational and linguistic domainslikewise. Since the last workshop, the concern with visualizing language data has further increased, asthe recurrence of specialized symposia in the linguistic and NLP contexts show (cf. e.g. ACL workshop2014, AVML 2014, Herrenhäuser Symposium 2014, QueryVis 2015). Moreover, the application ofvisualization techniques to various use cases is becoming ever more agile.As a specialized subfield of information visualization, the visualization of language continues to faceparticular challenges: Language data is complex, only partly structured and, as with todays languageresources, comes in large quantities. Moreover, due to the variety of data types, from textual data tospoken or signed language data, the challenges for visualization are necessarily varied. The overallchallenge lies in breaking down the multidimensionality into intuitive visual features that enable anat-a-glance overview of the data. The second edition of the workshop therefore aims at advancing thefield of linguistic visualization by particularly focusing on more advanced visualization techniques thatrepresent the complexity of language and that contribute to resolving them.
