A golden promotional opportunity for all language technology SMEs!

LangTech 2008, http://www.langtech.it/en/, the 
language technology business conference, is 
featuring a special elevator session for small 
and medium sized enterprises, SMEs.
An elevator session is a session with very short presentations.

If you seek business partners, you are invited to 
participate in LangTech 2008 in Rome, February 
28-29, and make yourself known to the audience.

A committee of European experts shall choose a 
total of 10 SMEs from anywhere in Europe and 
beyond to give a 5 min self-promotional 
presentation in English before a floor of venture 
capitalists, business peers, large technology 
corporations and other interested parties.

A jury will select three of the presenting 
companies, and award the first, second and third LangTech Prize.

Submissions must be received by 30 December 2007.
The lucky candidates will be informed by 15 January 2008.

We will offer a reduced fee to LangTech 2008 to 
all SMEs selected to present at the elevator session.

If you wish to submit a request to present your 
SME for this unique opportunity, please contact 
sme at langtech.it immediately, and visit the web 
site dedicated to LangTech 2008, 
http://www.langtech.it/en/, where you can 
download a short slide set with guidelines for preparing your candidature.


Dr Calzolari would be pleased if you could spread

Presentations to anyone you consider potentially interested in the event.
