Hi all,

Today we are doing a major pre-holiday publicity push for the MultilingualWeb Workshop in Rome (which will include much about ITS 2.0 and its implementations). We would like to encourage registrations and submissions to speak.

There are a few things *you* can do to help:

1. If you haven't already done so, please register yourself for the workshop at https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/1/mlwrome/


2. We have an announcement text we encourage you to use to reach out to your colleagues whom you think might be interested:

Special interactive sessions planned for the W3C MultilingualWeb workshop in Rome, March 2013
Led by experts in the field, two special break-out sessions on Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) and Linked Open Data (LOD) are planned for the upcoming MultilingualWeb workshop, to be held at the headquarters of the UNís Food and Agriculture Organization in the heart of Rome,on 12-13 March. We will also continue the Open Space discussions that have been so popular in the past.

In addition, lunch-time exhibition sessions will showcase the recent work and progress made on implementing the ITS 2.0 specification, a major effort in the W3C to improve support for language- and translation-related processes.

Register soon to ensure you get a place, especially if you are interested in also speaking. See the Call for Participation (http://multilingualweb.eu/rome) for more information.

The W3C's MultilingualWeb workshops bring together approximately 150 implementers, leading developers, localizers, researchers and users of the Web to discuss best practices and standards related to all aspects of creating, localizing and deploying the Web multilingually. One and a half days of presentations will be followed by break-out sessions that will allow attendees to explore additional topics in an in-depth, discussion-oriented fashion.

Participation is free.

If you have any questions, contact the program committee chair, Dr. Arle Lommel (arle.lommel@dfki.de).


3. If you are active on Facebook, please consider indicating that you plan to attend the Workshop on this page: https://www.facebook.com/events/189671001157885

Doing so will show to others that you will attend. You can also, of course, link to the event page as well to help spread the word.


4. If you use Twitter, please let your followers know about the workshop using the #mlwrome hashtag. For Twitter you can use http://bit.ly/mlwrome as the (shorter) URL.


5. Please also consider posting information about the workshop in any LinkedIn groups that you subscribe to that might be relevant.

Best,

Arle
