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!
