Dear colleagues,

As you are no doubt aware by now, the Fifth MultilingualWeb Workshop will be in Dublin this coming Monday through Wednesday (see the program at http://www.multilingualweb.eu/program).

While the registration deadline is past, you can still follow the progress of the Workshop (and contribute!) through a couple of means and we would encourage you to join us remotely, even if only for a short time. While these may not be the same as being in the room with the participants, they are the next best thing to being there yourself.


IRC
To see a detailed (and live) stream of comments and notes you can join our IRC channel, which will be followed by many of the participants. On it we will have volunteer scribes taking notes (with the occasional contribution from the audience as well). So even if you cannot be in the room, you can follow along and even ask questions yourself through it.
To access the IRC channel with an IRC client, join #mlwDub on irc.w3.org:6665
To access the IRC channel with a web client, go to http://irc.w3.org/. Select a short nickname and use #mlwDub as the channel. You will see the conversation taking place in the main part of the page. You can participate by typing in the white line at the bottom of the page. You can practice joining the channel before the workshop starts, if you like.
For an example of what you can expect in the IRC, you can see the (slightly cleaned up) IRC logs for the Luxembourg conference in March at http://www.w3.org/2012/03/15-mlw-minutes.html


Twitter
We will be using the #mlwDub hashtag during the event, so you can see tweets coming from Dublin and share them with others.

You can see tweets from the Luxembourge workshop at http://topsy.com/s?q=%23mlwlux
 

And remember that if you cannot make it, that videos from the Workshop will be posted after the workshop and PDFs of presentation slides will also be available for download after the Workshop is over.

Best regards,

Arle Lommel
