ReLDI is a net­work of re­searchers and pro­fes­sion­als who co­op­er­ate on col­lect­ing, com­pu­ta­tion­al­ly pro­cess­ing, and dis­trib­ut­ing lin­guis­tic data, pri­mar­i­ly in Croa­t­ian and Ser­bian, but also in oth­er close­ly re­lat­ed Slav­ic lan­guages. Our mem­bers are aca­d­e­m­ic staff and pro­fes­sion­als who ad­here to strict prin­ci­ples of data shar­ing and high stan­dards in re­search and pro­fes­sion­al work. We pro­mote ob­jec­tive study of lan­guage that re­lies on con­tem­po­rary com­put­ing tech­nol­o­gy and sound em­pir­i­cal method­ol­o­gy.

The net­work con­sists of founders of the ReLDI Cen­tre, net­work ini­tia­tors and reg­u­lar mem­bers, whose pro­files are list­ed be­low.

If you wish to be­come a mem­ber of our net­work, you can sub­mit your re­quest by fill­ing in this form. Your re­quest will be re­viewed by the cur­rent mem­bers as soon as pos­si­ble and we will no­ti­fy you of our de­ci­sion. A nec­es­sary pre-req­ui­site for join­ing our net­work is a rec­om­men­da­tion by at least one of the cur­rent mem­bers. Once you join the net­work, your pro­file will be list­ed on this page and you will get ac­cess to our com­mon vir­tu­al work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.
