The 2013 edition of the AfLaT workshop series took place on Friday 6 December 2013, at Ghent University. It was the fifth in the series, and conceived differently from previous editions, in that we wanted to broaden our activities by reaching out to all colleagues who have lexical resources for African languages, and are already working with those resources, but have not yet necessarily made the move to using advanced computational routines to speed up the analysis or the building of tools.
And so AfLaT 5 was conceived as a MasterClass, led by the founding members of AfLaT: Guy De Pauw (U Antwerp), Gilles-Maurice de Schryver (U Ghent), and Peter Wagacha (U Nairobi). Researchers were invited to present their current data sets and/or research during max. 20minutes, to be followed by a discussion and advice from those present for 10 min.
On the following pages, you will find some impressions of the workshop. The full book of abstracts can be found here.
