Workshop 'Computational Approaches to Ancient Greek and Latin'

From:Tu 14-03-2023
Until:We 15-03-2023
Where:Norman Building, Lutkenieuwstraat 5

The workshop aims at further exploring the potential of computational approaches (Natural Language Processing) to Ancient Greek and Latin, with a group of scholars pioneering this field. The workshop is a follow-up of the First Day of Computational Approaches to Greek and Latin held in Groningen in November 2021, out of which fruitful working relationships and collaborations have arisen.

Second Instalment

In the second instalment, we aim to consolidate those collaborations, but we have also invited new scholars in the field to expand the network.

The conference itself is planned at the end of the afternoon of 14 March and during the day of 15 March, 2023 at the Norman Building (Lutkenieuwstraat 5, Groningen).
