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

A description of the sessions is now available on the web site.
