March 2013 - Rutkowski’s research trip to Australia

In the second half of March Paweł Rutkowski visited two Australian universities: Macquarie University, Sydney and La Trobe University, Melbourne. It was possible thanks to the financial support from The Fundation for Polish Science. The visit initiated tight cooperation between our Section and prominent researchers of Australian Sign Language: Trevor Johnston and Adam Schember. The meetings were an excellent chance for exchanging experiences of generating sign language corpora. Prof. Trevor Johnston’s visit to Warsaw is planned for June in relation to which a special seminar will be organised at the University of Warsaw.
