Organic.Lingua Final Workshop

Organic.LinguaJust about a month before the end of the Organic.Lingua project, the Final Workshop of the project will be held. More specifically, the Workshop will be titled "Using multilingual technologies in web portals - Challenges & Promises" and will take place on Thursday, February 6th, 2014 between 15.30-18.30 (CET) at the premises of  Città dell'Altra Economia (CAE) in Rome, Italy. It will be co-organised by Agro-Know Technologies and University of Alcalá (UAH), both project partners of the Organic.Lingua project.
The aim of this Workshop will be to present the produced multilingual technologies & framework applied to transform the Organic.Edunet to a truly multilingual service, and their potential to be used in other online services. In this direction, the workshop aims to bring together people from different organizations and initiatives that are active in the Agricultural domain, as well as potential adopters of the multilingual framework, to discuss on how they could take advantage of these multilingual technologies within their institutions/organizations.  During the workshop a set of best practices for transforming an online service to a truly multilingual service will be presented and discussed.

The Organic.Edunet Web portal

The draft agenda of the Workshop includes the following topics:
  • The language barrier in the Agricultural Domain;
  • Applying language technologies in agricultural online services: The case of Organic.Edunet;
  • Managing multilingual vocabularies and ontologies;
  • A multilingual framework for transforming online services to truly multilingual;
  • Round Table: Discussion on best practices and networking session

The workshop will also include a networking session, that will give the participants the chance to discuss on potential opportunities arising from Horizon 2020 and Connecting Europe Facility.
