Virtual ZOOM conference (hosted from Berlin, Germany)

META-FORUM is the international conference series on powerful and innovative Language Technologies for the multilingual information society. It’s the place to be to learn about the most recent developments in European Language Technology industry and research including language-centric AI.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, META-FORUM 2020 goes virtual. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss anything. Just like its eight predecessor conferences, this year’s META-FORUM will offer a wide variety of presentations and panel discussions, and also our expo will open its doors again. At our virtual expo booths you can get to know our 10 brand-new ELG pilot projects and their work and learn more about other interesting innovation projects and initiatives.

This year’s META-FORUM will also offer the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the upcoming Release 2 of the ELG cloud platform, which will be launched in early 2021. The system was demonstrated at META-FORUM 2019 for the very first time, and has since been extensively developed and enhanced.

Registration for META-FORUM is, as usual, free of charge.

We look forward to seeing you online.
