30 November 2016 to 2 December 2016



The Workshop 'Future and Emerging Trends in Language Technology' has been conceived as a meeting point where experts and professionals in the fields of language technologies and other converging areas will discuss the state of the art, as well as the emerging trends in this sector. The main objective of this workshop is to serve as a bridge between academia and industry, as well as representatives of agencies that coordinate research and innovation policies.

It was selected for the Final Workshop of LT-Observatory to raise awareness of the project's results in the area of Language Resources and their usability for commercial purpose. Furthermore, an overview of the LT Strategic R+I agenda will be given in collaboration with the CRACKER project, and the MT EcoGuide as well as the "Vademecum" through the national and reginal funding maze will be presented.
