2nd XLIFF Symposium
Call for Papers
The 2nd XLIFF Symposium will take place on 28 September 2011, in Warsaw, Poland. It is the main event of the pre-conference day of TM-Europe 2011. The symposium builds on success of the 1st XLIFF Symposium which was held last September in Limerick, Ireland as part of the 15th Annual Internationalisation and Localisation Conference organised by the LRC.
We would welcome proposals which cover but are not limited to the following topics:
- The present state and future of XLIFF
- XLIFF - What is missing
- Analysis of XLIFF in commercial tools
- XLIFF and other standards
- XLIFF and the translation process
- XLIFF, terminology and translation memory
- XLIFF 2.0
In addition to this we would also welcome proposals for short case studies and suggestions for future development. During the Symposium we are planning to have two sessions with three short presentations which introduce new ideas for XLIFF or examples of how XLIFF is being used in practise.
We will also be hosting a question and answer session with representatives of the XLIFF technical committee.
If you are interested in the above topics and have knowledge and experience to share with your peers, potential clients, suppliers, and other industry experts, please save the date and submit a proposal for presentations and panels for 2nd XLIFF Symposium.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 20 May 2011 and we shall be contacting potential speakers and panellists at the middle of June at the latest. Registration will open for TM-Europe 2011 and the 2nd XLIFF Symposium in June 2011.
