Organized by:

Arnold Chikobava, Institute of Linguistics

The 21st century has highlighted the role of computational technologies with respect to the preservation and development of national languages and cultures. Processing of linguistic data by means of up-to-date technologies is a necessary condition for the full-scale functioning of natural languages. Therefore, the overall inclusion of the Georgian language into the cyberspace has been an urgent task: creation of text corpora, electronic libraries, software for e-learning of languages and for translation.

The aim of the conference is to present what has been done in the field, to sum up outcomes, to set future objectives, and to share experience.
