About the CLARIN Annual Conference

The CLARIN Annual Conference is the main annual event for those working on the construction and operation of CLARIN across Europe, as well as for representatives of the communities of use in the humanities, and social sciences. The 2020 edition took place virtually. In 2021 we hope to be able to -at least partially- return to the traditional format, for which in 2021 Madrid would be the venue.  The event will be prepared  by CLARIN ERIC,  in collaboration with LINHD -Digital Humanities Innovation Labies Innovation Lab- and UNED -National Distance Education University of Spain.

CLARIN2021 is organized for the wider Humanities and Social Sciences communities in order to exchange ideas and experiences with the CLARIN infrastructure. This includes the design, construction and operation of the CLARIN infrastructure, the data, tools and services that it contains or for which their is a need, its actual use by researchers, its relation to other infrastructures and projects, and the CLARIN Knowledge Sharing Infrastructure.

We welcome the following categories of participants to attend the event: authors of accepted papers, members of national consortia and representatives of CLARIN centres as well as representatives from partner organizations. People who have received an invitation to attend the conference will receive registration information from the CLARIN Office or from the national coordinators of their country. Other registration requests can be sent to CLARIN Office (, and will be treated on a case by case basis.

You can always find the latest details on this page. Updates will also be communicated via the news section on the CLARIN website, the CLARIN Newsflash and Twitter
