*****Apologies for multiple postings***

We are pleased to announce that the *third FLaReNet Forum "/Language Resources in the Sharing Age - the Strategic Agenda/"* will take place in Venice, Italy, 26 and 27 May 2011, in the beautiful setting of Auditorium Santa Margherita <http://www.unive.it/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=45619&image=5>, Ca' Foscari University.

Following the usual successful formula, the third Forum is conceived as a collaborative workshop designed to raise discussion in a very interactive way, thus creating a breeding ground for open questions, new ideas and visions for the field of Language Resources/Technologies.

The Venice Forum sessions are devoted to the following topics: Identification and tracking of Language Resources; Open Data; Go green: reuse, repurpose, and recycle resources; Innovation needs data; Data for all languages: think big; Long life to our resources; From recommendations to actions: what’s next?

A description of the sessions is now available on the web site (http://www.flarenet.eu/).
