W3C Workshop: The Multilingual Web

Dear TEI folks,

On behalf of the program committee, I would like to bring your attention to a W3C Workshop that has been announced recently, entitled “The Multilingual Web – Where Are We?”, to be held in Madrid on 26-27 October, 2010.  We think that, given your area of expertise, you may be interested in participating in the workshop, and would like to extend to you a personal invitation to attend.

The key objective of the workshop will be to survey and introduce people to currently available best practices and standards that are aimed at helping content creators, localizers, tools developers, and others meet the challenges of the multilingual Web. We will also try to identify gaps. The workshop is part of the European Commission funded MultilingualWeb project, which is coordinated by the W3C.  For more information, see the Call for Participation.

We hope that people from the TEI community will be able to attend.

If you are interested in also speaking at the workshop (which we would welcome), we encourage you to send an expression of interest as soon as possible for consideration by the program committee.  For information about how to send an expression of interest, and the type of talk we are looking for, please see the Call for Participation.  The program committee will evaluate your proposal against the needs of the program and let you know if your proposal was accepted by 15 September. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Ishida (ishida@w3.org).

Thank you for your attention, and hoping to see you at the workshop.

Felix Sasaki
