Multilingual Linked Open Data for Enterprises (MLODE 2014), 1-2 September, Leipzig, Germany

MLODE 2014 will take place on 1st and 2nd of September 2014 and will bring together developers, data producers, academia and enterprises and connect people, communities, data and industrial use cases. As Semantic Web research progresses, interest by practitioners, industry and infrastructure providers operating across language barriers increases. The Linked Open Data (LOD) community is enthusiastic about the new possibilities offered by new, vast multilingual resources. While it is clear that the Semantic Web is not a panacea, it has matured into a technology capable of addressing specific real world problems of globalisation faced by industry and the governmental sector.

Sociocultural competence & language learning in multilingual settings, 18-19 September, Brussels, Belgium

Current language pedagogy is more and more confronted with notions such as ‘intercultural learning’, ‘intercultural communication’ and ‘multicultural society’. In spite of this growing interest, we still know little about the actual realization of what is referred to as ‘sociocultural competence’ within the setting of multilingual education.

Big Data: New opportunities and challenges in language acquisition research, 04-Mar-2015 - 04-Mar-2015, Leipzig, Germany

Language acquisition research on topics ranging from phonological processing to semantic knowledge has been built on meticulous examination of small data sets, such as case studies. While we have learned a lot from such careful work, some limitations quickly became evident. A new horizon has opened as bigger, open data sets began to emerge. Early examples are the CHILDES and the MCDI projects. Today, new technologies pave the way to some much needed cross-linguistic extensions, for instance, via automatic annotation of day-long audio(-video) recordings in seldom described languages. It also becomes possible to include other linguistic levels (e.g., receptive knowledge through open repositories of experimental results).
