On April 29 2020, Tomaž Erjavec held three lectures at the Faculty of computer science and informatics, University of Ljubljana, about the CLARIN.SI research infrastructure and its repository and the TEI recommendations for language data annotation.
Presentation slides and lecture recordings are available here.
On May 6 2020, we held a getting-to-know-each-other online session of the CLASSLA workshop that was supposed to start that day in Ljubljana, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis. The session was a very enjoyable experience as can be read about in the short description of the event.

We are happy to announce that the CLARIN.SI Projects webpage now holds descriptions of projects that were supported by CLARIN.SI in 2019. Similar to 2018, the projects’ aims were diverse and covered upgrading existent tools and resources to creating new ones. The projects and the number of new entries in the repository show the growing interest and awareness among researchers with regard to language resources and technologies.
The CLARIN.SI Call for Projects for 2020 will be published in March.
