3-3-6 (2011-05-26) 3rd FLaReNet Forum 'Language Resources in the Sharing Age - the Strategic Agenda'

We are pleased to announce that the third FLaReNet Forum 'Language Resources in the Sharing Age - the Strategic Agenda' will take place in Venice, Italy, 26 and 27 May 2011, in the beautiful setting of Auditorium Santa Margherita, Ca' Foscari University.

Following the usual successful formula, the third Forum is conceived as a collaborative workshop designed to raise discussion in a very interactive way, thus creating a breeding ground for open questions, new ideas and visions for the field of Language Resources/Technologies.

The Venice Forum sessions are devoted to the following topics:

- Identification and tracking of Language Resources
- Open Data
- Go green: reuse, repurpose, and recycle resources
- Innovation needs data
- Data for all languages: think big

- Long life to our resources
- From recommendations to actions: what’s next?


A description of the sessions is now available on the web site.
