Madame monsieur

Dear Sir, Dear Madam, 
We would like to invite you to participate in the Language Technology Days
organised by Unit E1 - Language Technologies and Machine Translation, on 14-15
January 2009 in Luxembourg.

Our Unit has been established in July 2008 as part of Directorate E - Digital
Content and Cognitive Systems of the Directorate-General Information Society
and Media. In parallel, some 40 Meuro have been earmarked for multinational
projects and networks to be established in 2009 under 
• the FP7-ICT research programme
(http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/programme/home_en.html) 
• The ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT-PSP), an innovation programme which
supports actions aimed at fostering technology uptake and best practices
(http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/activities/ict_psp/about/index_en.h
tm)

The fourth FP7-ICT call for proposals, due to be launched within a few days,
features Objective 2.2: Language-based interaction. 

The third ICT-PSP call is expected to be published in the first quarter of
2009, and will include Theme 5: Multilingual Web.

The respective work programmes and calls are in the process of being adopted.
They will be presented at the ICT 2008 conference and exhibition held in Lyon
on 25-27 November 2008
(http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/index_en.htm). Our
session is scheduled for 26 November 2008 at 16:00.
