In the afternoon of March 20, a number of LPCN members had a workshop together with Humlab on the topic of text analysis. We all presented how we use or plan to use text analysis in our work. Happily, we managed to identify a number of immediate collaboration opportunities and also discussed the possibilities for building a joint text analysis infrastructure. As an additional benefit, the LPCN family grew substantially! The workshop concluded with a very nice after work session.
