Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The School of Indian Languages, University of Kerala announces its first
international seminar on Indian Language Technology: State and Prospects to
be organized from March 18 - 21, 2014 in Thiruvananthapuram.

In this seminar the current status and future prospects relating to the
Indian Language Technology initiatives with a special focus on the
achievements and predicaments will be discussed. The interface of natural
language and technology is a domain of vibrant activity; its R&D is highly
innovative and is an emerging area of coordination between science and
technology. This seminar facilitates formation of a comprehensive framework
for addressing the multifarious issues, linguistic and technological,
propping up in handling Indian languages. India, with its huge potential of
linguistic diversity, offers new technological opportunities in the
development and application of human language technologies. Technology
based linguistic research for human welfare is having paramount importance
in India. Grass root level dissemination of language technology should be
our goal. Many regional languages are deprived of the benefits of
information technology development. The benefits of information technology
can reach to the common man only when software tools and human machine
interface systems are freely available in people’s languages.

Registration fees for foreigners: $100
For Indians: 500 Rs
For students: 250 Rs

It may also be noted that the expenses related to travel may be arranged
