Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to join the Human Language Technology Days
2012 <http://www.hltdays.pl/>  international event to be held on 27-28
September 2012 in Warsaw. The event is organised by the Institute of
Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the University of
Łódź in the framework of the ICT-PSP project CESAR
<http://www.cesar-project.net/>  (Central and South-East European Resources,
part of META-NET <http://www.meta-net.eu/> ). 

Human Language Technology Days 2012 intends to promote language technology
and its research, economic and societal potential, by gathering experts and
users who will discuss the important issues on the future of languages and
language processing in a multilingual European and global digital
information society. How does massive digitisation of information, knowledge
and everyday communication affect our language? Will our language change or
even disappear? Will Polish be used in the communication channels of 21st
century on equal grounds with other European languages? What steps do we
need to take in order to assure that? Under the high patronage of the
Minister of Science and Higher Education and the president of the Polish
Academy of Sciences, we have gathered speakers from the European Commission,
IBM, Google, Polish Academy of Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and
many other European research infrastructure institutions.

This event, at the same time, is a Road Show of European language
technology, a presentation of the state-of-the-art services in which
development of language resources and language tools are currently at and
how they can be used for research and business. Particular attention will be
drawn to language technology for Polish and the role it plays in research,
administration and business within the digital information society. 

The event is co-located with ICT Proposers
<http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ictproposersday/2012/index_e
n.htm> ' Day 2012, which offers numerous possibilities to have bilateral
discussions with the European Commission staff on 26 September 2012 about
Language Technology related calls, namely ICT Call 10 and SME-DCA call.

We sincerely invite you to register for HLT Days 2012
<http://www.hltdays.pl/register>  and look forward to seeing you in Warsaw!
