time, the workshop had sign language corpora as its main topic. This time, the focus was on any
aspect beyond the manual channel. Not surprisingly, most papers deal with non-manuals on the
Once again, the papers at this workshop clearly identify the potentials of even closer cooperation
between sign linguists and sign language engineers, and we think it is events like this that contribute
a lot to a better understanding between researchers with completely different backgrounds.
