USI Lugano, West Campus, main building, room 253

KIParla is a publicly accessible corpus of spoken Italian that currently consists of 100 hours of audio-recorded and transcribed discourse in various types of situations and is designed to be expanded by further modules. In the workshop, Caterina Mauri and Silvia Ballarè (University of Bologna) will present this resource and discuss the KIParla case as an example of open research data in linguistics. The invited speakers will dialogue with Lorenza Mondada (University of Basel) in the role of discussant and engage in a more general discussion with the audience about practices and challenges related to data collection, storage, sharing and reuse in the study of talk-in-interaction.

The event is organized by Johanna Miecznikowski (USI) on behalf of the project Data-sharing skills in corpus-based research on talk-in-interaction (short title: CHORD-Talk-in-interaction), which is part of a program about open research data (ORD) funded by SwissUniversities. It addresses a public of researchers in interactional linguistics and neighbouring fields and, more generally, of researchers in the humanities who are interested in the topic of open data. It can be attended free of charge, on site or online. On site participants are invited to a small networking reception after the workshop.
