|Australasian Language Technology Workshop 2008|
We are seeking sponsors to support ALTA 2008, in particular, to support participation by students who may otherwise be unable to attend. As sponsors, you will have the opportunity to be badged as such at the event, and will be listed on all workshop publications. There will also be the opportunity to distribute flyers and you can be allocated poster space at the venue.
In 2008, the ALTA Workshop is being held in Tasmania, on December 8-10, comprising a two-day workshop on Natural Language Technology and is organised by the Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA). This event will be the sixth annual installment of the workshop in its most-recent incarnation, and the continuation of an annual workshop series that has existed under various guises since the early 90s. The ALTA Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Australian Document Computing Symposium (ADCS), which focuses on issues ranging from the fundamentals of document architectures and standards for markup, through various aspects of document processing. http://es.csiro.au/adcs2008/index.html.
We are also very interested in attracting industry participation to the workshop, and have structured our suggested sponsorship packages to encourage this. We are planning demonstration sessions at the workshop at which industry organisations are welcome to showcase their products or solutions employing language technology. We also would like to solicit interest in a panel discussion session on "Language Technology and Industry: skills and new techniques needed" -- please let us know if you may be interested in participating in such a discussion.
This year, we are suggesting the following levels of sponsorship
* Each registration includes the keynote session and cocktail evening held jointly with the Australian Document Computing Symposium (ADCS)
We sincerely hope you will consider sponsoring ALTA-2008 and thereby supporting student participation. You will be investing in the future of language technology in the region!
