Subject: "MultilingualWeb" Workshop: Linked Open Data
To: [log in to unmask]
I am writing to let you know about an upcoming even that may be of
interest to you and the library community in general. On June 11–13,
Trinity College Dublin will be hosting three days of meetings about
Linked Open Data (June 11) and the Multilingual Web - LT project (June
12 and 13).
Linked Open Data, the sharing of open language resources that have
added metadata to tie them together) has emerged as an important topic
in recent years, but multilingualism and translation in this context
still need a lot of consideration. The MultilingualWeb-LT project is
currently developing the metadata that will make this linkage possible
for multilingual content, which is turn will simplify the production
of multilingual content on the Web.
We are looking for speakers and participants in this workshop and
invite you to visit
submit your ideas and to register. Registration is free (although
space is limited so you will want to register early) and we invite all
interested parties to join us in Dublin for this event. By
participating you will help define the future of language technology
in these areas and ensure that your needs and requirements are met in
new inventions and technologies.
If you have questions about the meetings or the MutlilingualWeb-LT
project, please contact Dave Lewis ([log in to unmask]) for more
