Stefano Menini will participate to the CLARIN Annual Conference 2017, the main annual event for those working on the construction and operation of CLARIN across Europe.

The 2017 annual conference will take place from 18th September till 20th September in Budapest (Hungary) and is rich of keynotes, papers, posters and demos.

This event is organized by CLARIN ERIC in collaboration with the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

On Tuesday we will showcase our “Ramble-On Navigator” at the CLARIN Bazaar.

Title: Ramble-On Navigator: Tracing Trajectories over Time

Abstract: RAMBLE-ON is a freely available system that integrates a user-friendly visualisation interface to view persons’ movements and a background information extraction engine that, given biographies, extracts people’s trajectories and enriches them with information to plot them on a map.
The interface allows users to navigate such movements in an interactive way, with the possibility to explore different time spans and categories (e.g. people with different profession, origin or gender). RAMBLE-ON has been used in several use cases including the study of movements of notable people in the XX century, the analysis of transfers of Italian Shoah victims and the visualisation of Grand Tour itineraries.
