After a brief hiatus, I’m pleased to say that we will shortly be relaunching the London Text Analytics meetup. As many of you know, in the recent past we have organized some relatively large and ambitious events at a variety of locations. But we have struggled to find a regular venue, and as a result have had difficulty in maintaining a scheduled programme of events.
What we really need is a venue we can use on a more regular schedule, ideally on an ex-gratia basis. It doesn’t have to be huge – in fact; a programme of smaller (but more frequent) meetups is in many ways preferable to a handful of big gatherings.
Can you help, or do you know someone who can? If so, please contact me either here or via tgr AT uxlabs.co.uk.
Of course, venues are only half the story: we also need content. And that means presenters! So I would like to take this opportunity to invite prospective speakers to come forward. It doesn’t matter whether you are an (academic) researcher, practitioner, developer or just an enthusiast, all are equally welcome. And our interpretation of text analytics is broad: we are concerned with analysis of human language in all its forms.
Are you interested in presenting? If so, don’t be shy – drop me a note either here or via tgr AT uxlabs.co.uk to discuss further.
