Pre-Conference: ELG Workshop


European Language Grid Roadshow!

Workshop of Baltic Countries

This workshop is organised under the umbrella of the EU-funded project European Language Grid (2019-2021). The project develops a scalable cloud platform, providing, in an easy-to-integrate way, access to commercial and non-commercial Language Technology services and data sets for all European languages, including hundreds of running tools and services as well as thousands of data sets and resources. ELG aims at listing all relevant stakeholders, from technology development to research centres, from small and medium-sized companies to large enterprises. Stakeholders will be able to register themselves in the ELG catalogue (the “Yellow Pages of European Language Technology”).

ELG is committed to community building and is also coordinating and collaborating with various larger initiatives on the European level. The European Language Grid has a strong and broad network of 32 National Competence Centres (NCCs), which act as local and national bridges to the ELG consortium and the European Language Grid cloud platform.

This workshop is organised in cooperation with the ELG National Competence Centres in Baltic Countries (Albina Auksoriūtė, Institute of the Lithuanian Language; Inguna Skadiņa, Institute of Mathematics and computer science, University of Latvia; Kadri Vare, Language Policy Department, Estonian Ministry of Education and Research).

The workshop of Baltic Countries will touch upon various topics, including:

  • Technological Multilingualism in Baltic Countries;
  • Overview of the European Language Grid project and platform;
  • Demo of the current release of the ELG cloud platform;
  • Open Call for Pilot Projects: information for interested parties;
  • Best practices from research and industry users of ELG.

The workshop of Baltic Countries will take place from 1 to 6 p.m. on 21 September 2020.
