AbstractThis demonstration presents a first operable pilot of the Language Analysis Portal (LAP), an ongoing project within the Norwegian CLARINO initiative that aims at providing easy access to Language Technology (LT) tools running on a powerful High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster. The system is built on top of the Galaxy framework, giving users an on-line platform where they can design experiments using an array of processors. These processors can be combined into complex workflows using a visual editor. The current implementation functions as a testbed for further development, hosting a limited collection of tools addressing common use-cases in the LT-realm; the long-term goal for LAP is to reach beyond the field and be an enabling platform for LT-powered research in the humanities and social sciences.
