Equipe/EUROMAP is the UK focal point for EU-funded R&D in the area of
Human Language Technologies (HLT). We would like to invite you to join
us at a seminar which will highlight opportunities for UK

development.

The event: Future of the Information Society: Human Language

The place: The Howard Building, Downing College, Cambridge

The seminar will enable UK researchers in the HLT area to make contact
with developers and users interested in taking advantage of new
technologies for speech and language. Some of the leading researchers
in the UK will be present at the event, and a senior official from the
EU will be on hand to describe the new Fifth Framework research
programme - Information Society Technologies. There will also be an
exhibition and demonstration of new language technology tools.
A copy of the draft programme is attached below. In addition, you may
check the HLT Central web site (www.linglink.lu) for background
information on technology and markets in this area.

The event is subsidised by the European Commission; the only cost to
delegates is an administrative fee of 50 (plus VAT), to cover the
cost of seminar documentation and lunch.
