    Abstract

    This collection of papers stems from the Sixth Workshop on the Representation and Processing of
    Sign Languages, held in May 2014 as a satellite to the Language Resources and Evaluation
    Conference in Reykjavik.
    While there has been occasional attention for sign languages at the main LREC conference, the
    main focus there is on spoken languages in their written and spoken forms. This series of
    workshops, however, offers a forum for researchers focussing on sign languages. For the fourth
    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
    face.
    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.
