Johannes Keizer was Chair of the Workshop on Multilinguality

The problem of multilingual access to information resources can be seen as an extension of the general information retrieval problem and is becoming increasingly relevant. English has remained uncontested in its dominance but attention must now be given to other languages and subsequently to development of tools and methodologies to enable this. The workshop will provide a platform to share concrete examples, methodologies that can eventually be extended to the development of live applications used in and for agricultural information management.
