8th Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages:

Involving the Language Community

LREC logo


If you are doing corpus work on sign language or are planning to get started on this, we really recommend that you attend the main conference as well, not only our workshop. LREC is an excellent opportunity to learn about the state of the art in language resources for oral languages, and in many contexts this comparison defines our wish lists. Visit the web site and check yourself what LREC has to offer for you: LREC 2018.

Here is the list of main conference papers on sign language, all to be presented in session P58 on Friday 11:45-13:25:
