Workshop on the multilingual web  

Following the highly successful first event in Madrid, this second workshop will be held in Pisa, Italy, and hosted jointly by the Cnr-Institute of informatics and telematics (Iit) and the Institute of computational linguistic (Ilc).

Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication in all walks of life. As the share of English web pages decreases and that of other languages increases, it is vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the World Wide  Web. The multilingual web project is looking at best practices and standards related to all aspects of creating, localizing and deploying the web multilingually. The project aims to raise the visibility of existing best practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle for this is a series of four events which are planned for the coming two years.

Building on the success of the previous event, this workshop will use a similar format to once again bring together speakers and participants with an interest in best practices and standards aimed at helping content creators, localizers, tools developers, and others meet the challenges of the multilingual web. It provides further opportunities for networking across communities that span the various aspects involved.

Organizers are particularly interested in speakers who can identify gaps in current standards and best practices related to the mutilingual web, and propose opportunities for addressing those. The European commission is interested in these workshops as a means to identify directions for future project work related to the multilingual web, and as a vehicle for increasing contact and cross-fertilization between experts in this area. Participation is free. Speakers and non-speaking attendees are both welcomed and invited to register on the page www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/1/mlwpisa/

Deadline for speakers proposal is March 1, 2011.
