PART 3

GENERAL DISCUSSION (35')


2. Objectives of the Panel

After a brief presentation of the research programs in the field of Human Language Technology sponsored by European (EC) and North American (NSF, DARPA) Funding Agencies, we expect that the discussion, started by the panel discussants, will continue involving the panel participants and the audience, focusing on items such as the following ones:

    • different ways in which the international community can co-operate: needs and priorities in the short and medium term; formal and informal strategies for co-operation in the light of the opportunities offered by the Funding Agencies, on the basis of our present understanding of what obstacles are still in the way, what strategies have been successful and what can reasonably be envisaged for the future;
    • impact of the activities of the Funding Agencies on the development of our field: comments and remarks on the European and North American approach; suggestions for future initiatives.

     


    3. Post-Panel Discussion

    Those wishing to further contribute to the discussion, for example reporting on experience of international co-operation, highlighting general or specific needs, suggesting priorities, or commenting on policy and organisational problems, are invited to send messaged to the discussion list intpan@ilc.pi.cnr.it. If appropriate, we will channel comments and suggestions to the relevant funding agencies.
