The 5th RaPID Workshop (RaPID-5) is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers to share information, findings, methods, models and experience of the collection and processing of data produced by individuals with various forms of mental, cognitive, neuropsychiatric or neurodegenerative disabilities, such as aphasia, dementia, autism, Parkinson's disease or schizophrenia. Data includes spontaneous [continuous] speech and transcriptions, eye movement measurements, and various types of digital and multimodal biomarkers such as sensor data from mobile phones, smart watches, wearable devices, and the like.
A particular interest with RaPID-5 is studies on the relationship between different linguistic, paralinguistic and extralinguistic observations that can aid the identification, extraction, correlation, evaluation and modelling of different linguistic and/or multimodal phenotypes and measurements, which can be used to facilitate diagnosis, monitor development or predict individuals at risk of developing neurodegenerative or neuropsychiatric diseases.
RaPID-5 particularly welcomes contributions on multidisciplinary aspects of processing data from the aforementioned populations, and with a focus on the interaction between clinical/medical science/informatics, language technology, and computer science.
