How to add a language to the linguistic resources map
Corina Forascu ( University of Iasi )
Why are languages and language technologies important in our societies?
How to deal with a less-studied language?
How to build and exploit new language resources?
How much time is needed? How to represent and use time (temporal information in NLP applications)?
How to efficiently use time in research and… personal life?...
These are questions to be answered having the main focus on Romanian.
