Leadership within the Scientific Community

An important aspect of ALMAnaCH's work relates to standardisation initiatives, especially within the ISO TC37 committee on language and terminology. Laurent Romary is the President of this committee and the convenor of its working group TC37/SC4 on lexical resources, within which he and a number of other ALMAnaCH members (Jack Bowers, Mohamed Khemakhem, Benoît Sagot, Éric de La Clergerie) have responsibilities (as project leaders or co-leaders). Most of them are related to the revision as a multi-part standard of ISO 24613 (Lexical Markup Framework, [14]), the first part of which was published in June 2019.

ALMAnaCH members have also played a key role in developing the Standardisation Survival Kit, an online tool hosted by Huma-num which focuses on giving researchers access to standards in a meaningful way by using research scenarios which cover all the domains of the Humanities, from literature to heritage science, including history, social sciences, linguistics, etc. We have published one publications on this topic in 2019 [64], following numerous ones over the last few years.

Other examples of ALMAnaCH's leadership within the scientific community are the following:
