MARCELL presented at the LT4ALL Conference

The Language Technologies For All event was a major conference organised by the UNESCO within the framework of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages. Accordingly, the central theme of the conference was to explore how language technology can support the low-resourced and indigeneous languages all over the world. The MARCELL Project was presented to the participants of the Conference in this special context. All the seven languages in the MARCELL Activity belong to the category of less-resourced languages according to the META-NET Whitepaper series. In presenting the project at a poster session, Tamás Váradi emphasized that MARCELL can serve as a possible example for easily accessible source of data of substantial size and high quality. Furthermore, the body of legislative documents may also be exploited as a source for twenty one subdomains corresponding to the top level categories of the EUROVOC system, further enriching the possible datasets that can be accessed through the public data which is available in every country globally.

In addition to the poster, information about the MARCELL activity was also disseminated by flyers.

MARCELL presented at the META-FORUM 2019

The annual META-FORUM 2019 conference was held in Brussels on 2019-10-08 and 09. Participanats were many LT professionals, from both, research and industry, coming from practically all European member, CEF and candidate states. This event has become an important gathering of European LT community and that’s why MARCELL was presented there. Within the Project Expo sessions the MARCELL project was presented primarily by a roll-up poster which attracted a lot of attention and discussion since the expected results of MARCELL can become a potential source of linguistically processed data for several other running projects (e.g. LYNX, ELRC, Qurator etc.) that could directly use the multilayered annotation of large legal corpora of seven under-resourced and yet EU-official languages.

Additionally, the information about the MARCELL project was also disseminated by flyers.
