Challenges for Multilingual Europe
November 17./18. 2010
Hotel Le Plaza, Brussels, Belgium
META-NET is proud to announce the first META-FORUM conference event, entitled “Challenges for Multilingual Europe”. META-NET is a Network of Excellence, which is forging the Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance (META) through a concerted effort to build a strong European community around Language Technologies. By working together to provide grand visions and a strategic research agenda for Language Technology in Europe, META-NET is reaching out to a large community of diverse stakeholders to help foster the technological foundations of the European information society.
META-FORUM 2010 – “Challenges for Multilingual Europe” – takes place right in the heart of the European capital, Brussels. This event will provide a focal point for bringing together Language Technology experts from research and industry, users and also providers of Language Technology solutions, along with language communities, educators and local and European policy makers. The first steps towards building a strategic research agenda for Language Technologies will be presented at META-FORUM 2010, along with a demonstration of META-SHARE, META-NET’s open resource exchange infrastructure. This year META-FORUM will also play host to an information session detailing important information on upcoming calls from the European Commission.
META-FORUM serves as a gathering point for diverse communities of interest to meet and discuss developments, problems and opportunities presented by the challenges and opportunities of a modern and multilingual Europe. However, META-FORUM is not just a great networking opportunity. The interactive sessions, panel discussions and the Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance provide the perfect platform for you to have your say and speak directly with decision makers, researchers, policy makers and more.
