Agreement between ICT4LAW and the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communication Technology

Agreement between ICT4LAW and the Japanese National Institute of
Information and Communication Technology
In date July 22nd an agreement has been reached between ICT4LAW and NICT
for the adoption of the Language Grid technology
(http://langrid.nict.go.jp/en/index.html) in the context of the
provision of web services for legal document processing. In the context
of this agreement, NICT will allow CELI to operate a new node of the
grid to host natural language processing services. The software grid
will replace the FAUSS (Federated Architecture for Unstructured Semantic
Services) infrastructure (http://www.cross-library.com/FAUSS/) and host
a number of semantic web services provided by ICT4LAW partners. The
Torino node will be the first European node of the language grid.

Seminario

On 18-20 October Yohei Murakami and Takao Nakaguchi (reserachers at
NICT) will be in Torino to present the language grid technology and to
introduce CELI's and ILC's (Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, CNR,
Pisa) researchers to the use and configuration of the language grid
software. In the context of this event, a seminar will be held by Yohei
Murakami in order to describe the language grid software from a high
level perspective and to provide practical examples of its application.
Everybody is welcome to the seminar, which will take place from on
October 18th from 10:00 to 11:00 at CELI's premises, via San Quintino
