Call for Papers
Deadline for Submissions: January 8, 2024
The vast amount of spoken data available on internet platforms such as YouTube, Dailymotion, etc. constitute an invaluable source of raw material for linguistic research and language teaching. However, this type of data generally requires some processing, such as segmentation, annotation, transcription, alignment, outlier detection, and efficient data management, etc. before they can be properly exploited. 
The pre-conference workshop  seeks to bring together the latest research and innovative approaches in the field of Internet spoken corpora of English. We invite papers that address various aspects of data collection, pipelines, outlier identification, and data management in the context of Internet English spoken corpora.
We welcome submissions on a wide range of topics related to Internet corpora of English, including but not limited to:
    Data Collection Methodologies: Papers discussing novel approaches and tools for collecting spoken data from the internet, considering ethical and legal considerations.
    Data Preprocessing Pipelines: Research on data cleaning, normalization, tokenization, and other preprocessing steps tailored to Internet spoken corpora.
    Outlier Detection: Methods and techniques for identifying and handling outliers, anomalies, and noise in Internet spoken data.
    Data Management Strategies: Effective strategies for storing, indexing, and managing large-scale Internet corpora for efficient access and analysis.
    Quality Control and Annotation: Approaches for ensuring data quality, reliability, and automatic annotation of Internet spoken corpora.
    Use Cases and Applications: Research on practical applications of Internet spoken corpora in linguistics, NLP, social sciences, and conception of pedagogical resources.
Submission Guidelines:
    One-page abstracts should be sent to and by January 8, 2024.
This pre-conference workshop will take place at Université Paris Cité, Olympe de Gouges building, room 730 (seventh floor, to be confirmed). Please note that the ALOES 2024 conference takes place at Université Sorbonne Paris Nord in Villetaneuse on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th.
