COST ENeL WG1 meeting (organized with WG3)
Barcelona, Spain, 31 March – 1 April 2016
The fifth ENeL meeting was held in Barcelona. The topic of this meeting was Online Dictionaries, Dictionary Portals and their Users. This was be a joint meeting of WG1 and WG3 on March 31st 2016. The survey that you were kindly invited to complete already showed a wide interest in the topic in our community. The results of the survey were presented at the meeting.
Agenda for the WG1 meeting on April 1 is available below.
SURVEY ON ONLINE DICTIONARIES, DICTIONARY PORTALS AND THEIR USERS
The aim of this survey is to learn about user research in the different lexicographical projects that are represented in ENeL (WG1 and WG3). We would like to find out what methods are used to study user behaviour and which types of user contributions are used in the different projects.
Deadline for completing the survey was 27 November 2015.
We kindly ask you to read the instructions below carefully before you start:
Completing the survey will take about 15 minutes.
All members of Working Group 1 are required to fill in the survey. Completing the survey is the first requirement to qualify for reimbursement for the next meeting. The second requirement will be to have a paper accepted for presentation at the meeting. The call for papers will be out at the end of November.
Completing the survey will most likely require input from different people within your institution, i.e. computational linguists, corpus linguists, software engineers, lexicographers. We suggest that you collaborate and complete one survey per institution.
We recommend that one survey is completed per project. Thus if your institute works on several projects, please complete a separate survey for each of them.
