QT21 Planning Panel

The QT21 Planning Panel is a board consisting of stakeholders who would qualify as potential participants of QT21. The planning process, which is driven and coordinated by the QTLaunchPad Extended Steering Board, consists of several phases. The first phase is centred around the definition of research-innovation-application scenarios RIAS that should later guide R&D in QT21.

The meetings of the Planning Panel took place:

  • September 13/14 2012 at DFKI in Berlin
  • October 25 2012 at Hotel Crowne Plaza in Wiesbaden (co-located with tekom/TCworld fairs)
  • March 14 2013 at FAO Headquaters in Rome (co-located with MultilingualWeb workshop)
  • February 2014 at the Dagstuhl Seminar on “Translation into Morphologically Rich Languages”

Large space was given to the presentation and discussion of RIAS and the respective research strategies needed.
