The third edition of TALAf will be held during the JEP-TALN-RECITAL conference, on July 4, 2016 at INALCO in Paris.

The roles of TALAf workshop are:

  • bring together researchers in the field through meetings at the workshop but also with the mailing list;

  • pooling knowledge using open source tools, standards (ISO, Unicode), and publishing the resources produced with an open license (Creative Commons) to avoid including the loss of information when a project stop and can not be resumed immediately for lack of resources;

  • develop a set of best practices based on the experience of researchers ; set up simple efficient methodologies based on free or very cheap software for the development of resources, exchange about techniques that can avoid the use of non-existent resources and finally tavoid loss of time and energy.

TALAf workshops are supported by the non-profit organisation “Lexicologie Terminologie Traduction”:
