MultilingualWeb Workshop, Madrid. Speaker proposals due 17th September

The MultilingualWeb project[1], funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the W3C, is looking at best practices and standards related to all aspects of creating, localizing and deploying the multilingual Web. The project will raise visibility of what's available and identify gaps via a series of four events, over two years.

The first workshop takes place in Madrid on 26-27 October 2010.

Many interesting speaker proposals have already been submitted, and the program committee has also now confirmed lead speakers for each of the main workshop sessions from the following organizations:

    Internationalizers: W3C
    Creators: BBC World Service
    Localizers: SAP
    Users: Facebook
    Machines: DFKI
    Policy makers: Localisation Research Centre

See the Call for Participation[2] for details about how to register for the workshop.

In particular, if you wish to speak at this event, and haven't yet submitted a proposal, please send an expression of interest (see the CFP) by September 17th.

Best regards,



Richard Ishida
Internationalization Lead
