The seminar on Speech and Language Technology Tools is organized by HunCLARIN, Juhász Gyula Faculty of Pedagogy at the University of Szeged and the Hungarian Association of Applied Linguists and Language.

I would like to relay Rediet Abebe's call to support local organizations. As Rediet says "These problems have been and will be here for a very long time. For the last year, I have been co organizing a theory of machine learning seminar at Harvard. Following the format of our prior Harvard/MSR/MIT theory reading group, these have been extended blackboard talks with plenty of audience interaction. Following COVID-19, the last three talks in the semester (by Moritz Hardt, Zico Kolter, and Anima Anandkumar) were given virtually.
Hosted by Uruma Police Station, as many as 150 women took part in Monday's seminar, which is traditionally held at the beginning of summer, a time when sex crimes peak. The murder of Rina Shimabukuro, 20, late last month prompted many first-timers to show up at this year's event. "I could have been the one who was assaulted," said Yumeka Nagamine, 21, a local office worker, referring to alleged reports that Kenneth Franklin Shinzato, the suspect who is also a former marine, had driven around for several hours looking for a victim. Shimabukuro was reportedly attacked just before arriving home after a walk. Nagamine said she had been approached by U.S. soldiers in the past when walking past Kadena Air Base.
