Forthcoming Workshops

Language Data Commons of Australia – Co-Design Workshops

The Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) invites the research community to join 2 workshops to co-design a national research infrastructure program that will support the Language Data Commons of Australia.

We will be holding 2 open co-design workshops to better understand the current challenges around establishing the Language Data Commons of Australia. We will discuss the investment opportunity that ARDC has identified, with the aim of learning:

  • what outcomes and developments would be of most benefit
  • what will be both valuable and feasible
  • how our investments can align with other activity in the sector.

Workshop participants are expected to actively participate in discussions. We encourage participants to attend both workshops if possible. A summary of the discussions will be made available after each workshop.

When: Workshop 1: February 22 2024, 2PM- 4PM (AEDT); Workshop 2: March 7 2024, 1PM-3PM (AEDT)

Where: Online

Previous Workshops

If your university or organisation would like to host a workshop, please contact us.


Our webinar series is a joint initiative with the Language Technology and Data Analysis Laboratory (LADAL), (School of Languages and Cultures, The University of Queensland).

Advice for researchers

LDaCA has previously run regular online office hours, jointly hosted with the Australian Digital Observatory (ADO). This activity will not continue in 2024, but LDaCA and ADO are developing an alternative model to help Australian researchers working with linguistics, text analytics, digital and computational methods, social media and web archives.

In the meantime, you are welcome to contact us by email at with your technical questions, research problems and rough ideas to get advice and feedback from the combined expertise of our ARDC research infrastructure projects. No question is too small, and even if we don’t know the answer we are likely to be able to point you to someone who does.
