What did I do after September? Looks like I didn’t update anything after end of September… I gave a presentation at the 3rd annual conference of my doctoral program. In November, I was invited to present at Nordic CLARIN network workshop at Bergen, Norway. Later in November, we also run a workshop at Kokemus 2016… Read More Wrap-up for end of 2016
