Abstract

The goal of this symposium is to disseminate the OLAC vision to the language resources community, and to the European research community more broadly. We hope to encourage the community to archive and publish their resources using archival formats, and to document them using standard metadata. Presentations will address the following questions: What is the Open Language Archives Community? Why is language archiving important? What does it take to participate in OLAC? Discussion time will be used to clarify the OLAC model and to identify and address any concerns raised by the audience. Substantive feedback will help to guide the future evolution of OLAC. This symposium will mark the official launch of OLAC in Europe.
