The annual autumn workshop was first organized in October 2011 by the Language Bank in Gothenburg - now Språkbanken Text. Since 2018, the event has been organized by the National Language Bank. The workshop is an inspiring day about language technology and is primarily aimed at researchers who use linguistic material and who can benefit from digital tools to explore them.
