The third in the Language Standards for Global Business Summit series will continue to follow the principles of the past events.

This event will take place in Vienna, Austria, between the dates of December 14-15, 2006.

LSGB Vienna will focus on providing an inventory of all relevant standards, draft standards and present existing tools which could be adjusted to meet the needs of future communication standards. This meeting shall help to form a platform for future technical standards that enable full interoperability, compatibility and data exchange among user groups in the long term. It is intended to identify standards that are important in the GILT business. The meeting will last 2 days and this will be a fully interactive conference, including both audience and electronic media. The results obtained in this conference will be directly entered in Wikiforstandards, providing thus the basis for further long term projects.

Experts in the fields of software development, language service providers, linguists, standards bodies, associations, and industry will come together to assist in isolating these standards, and provide the framework for the continued work of future summits.

This event will also highlight the first visible result of the Berlin Summit, where was introduced. Gerard Meijssen, initiator of Wikiforstandards, will present the creation and implementation of this tool for future work.

Other highlights include:

Keynote presentation - From chaos to order

Panel: Globalisation - Speed versus quality?

Case studies of available resources

Workshop: To An Inventory of Tools

We invite software developers, language service providers, linguists, publishers, government agencies, standards bodies and practitioners to join us in Vienna, and contribute to building an inventory toward the next step of full interoperability and data exchange in the future.
