Meeting Description:

META-FORUM 2011: Solutions for Multilingual Europe
June 27/28, Budapest, Hungary http://www.meta-forum.eu

Call for Participation:

What would Europe be without its languages? The rich multiculturalism of Europe is synonymous not just with its many peoples, but with the languages they speak. These languages are precious assets which, in the modern Information Society need to be preserved, promoted and enabled through Language Technologies.

Through a focused and concerted effort the META-NET initiative (http://www.meta-net.eu) is working to promote Language Technologies as a means to turn Europe's linguistic diversity into Europe's linguistic opportunity.

You are invited to learn more about this work, to become actively involved and to represent your business/industry's view at META-FORUM 2011: Solutions for Multilingual Europe, June 27/28 2011 in Budapest, Hungary, http://www.meta-forum.eu.

Industry Exhibition:

The Industry Exhibition which will run concurrent with the main conference will feature presentations and demonstrations from large and small businesses working across the field of Language Technologies as well as showcasing recent R&D work carried out in EU-funded projects (a few slots are still available!).


The program includes presentations and panel discussions with representatives of IBM, Google, Daimler, Vodafone, several governments (Denmark, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Netherlands, Catalonia, India, South Africa), the European Patent Office and the European Commission, among others. Research presentations give an overview of the current state of multilingual Language Technology in Europe. META-NET's open resource exchange facility META-SHARE and a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for multilingual Europe will be presented. The SRA for European LT will be of utmost importance in laying the foundation for the next decade of funding on the national and international level, especially with regard to the final stages of FP7 and the next Framework Programme starting in 2014.

Free Registration:

Registration for META-FORUM 2011 is free, but online pre-registration at http://www.meta-net.eu/events/meta-forum-2011/registration is essential. If you wish to avail of one of the remaining slots at the industry exhibition please contact us.

Help shape the future of multilingual Europe at META-FORUM 2011. As Europeans, we must ask ourselves what would we be without our languages? Have your say at META-FORUM 2011: Solutions for Multilingual Europe.

We're convinced that META-FORUM 2011 will mark a cornerstone both for Multilingual Europe and for the European LT landscape and look forward to seeing you in Budapest!
