Workshop on Crowdsourcing Technologies for Language and Cognition Studies
This workshop was held on Jul7 27th, 2011, in conjunction with the 2011 Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute at the University of Boulder, Colorado. The workshop brought together linguists who are utilizing crowdsourcing technologies and those who wanted to know more about them, with ‘how-to’ tutorial sessions and a workshop where researchers presented results, ideas, and experimental design and evaluation strategies.
