Date : 26-27 September 2012
Venue: „Ion Heliade Radulescu” Amphitheater, Library of the Romanian Academy, Bucharest
The workshop will be a 2-day event. It is organized within the conference "Diaspora in the scientific research and higher education in Romania".
Besides presenting the new achievements in different domains, other major aims of this conference include: deciding over the newly introduced methodology of habilitation, propose new funding programs and decide the priority domains for them. This year, the language technologies domain has been invited to participate at these discussions. The session dedicated to human language technology (the LT4RD workshop) has the following major objectives:
1. Integration and increase of the visibility of research in computational linguistics, both nationally, by linking interdisciplinary activities of the areas involved, and world-wide, by correlating with the research in the Diaspora (dissemination).
2. Habilitation and auditing human resources (in terms of the methodology of CNATDCU - National Council for the Recognition of Degrees, Diplomas and Higher Education Certificates) starting from the national juridical framework, correlated with the situation of the researchers in the Diaspora (assessment, recommendations).3. Identifying the opportunities to continue and broaden the collaborations with long-term impact on the following plans: scientific (launching research projects, joint development and sharing of resources and language technologies), educational (master and PhD programs in collaboration, mobility) and Industrial (collaboration in the research, development and innovation strategy).
At this Conference, beside researchers, it is expected to have the participation of representatives of the Ministry of Education, Romanian Academy and the most important funding Romanian institutions (the last edition of this conference gathered around 700 participants).
