Jutta Willamowski  will participate in CHI 2014 . She will also participate in a SIGCHI HCI & Sustainability community workshop  which brings together researchers to:

assess what has been learned in the last eight years of HCI & Sustainability research; address conceptual inconsistencies in the field; and develop a coherent framework for orienting and evaluating future work.

13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems; May 5-9, 2014, Paris, France

Onno Zoeter  will participate in AAMAS 2014  and present two papers:

14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL); Gothenburg, Sweden, 26–30 April 2014

Christophe Servan , XRCE Machine Learning for Document Access and Translation research group, will participate in the conference and present a paper co-authored by Alessio Boscay, Vassilina Nikoulinaz  and Marc Dymetman :

"A Lightweight Terminology Verification Service for External MachineTranslation Engines" Abstract: We propose a demonstration of a domainspecific terminology checking service which works on top of any generic blackbox MT, and only requires access to a bilingual terminology resource in the domain. In cases where an incorrect translation of a source term was proposed by the generic MT service, our service locates the wrong translation of the term in the target and suggests a terminologically correct translation for this term.

The Grenoble site is set in a park in the heart of the French Alps in a stunning location only a few kilometers from the city centre. The city of Grenoble has a large scientific community made up of national research institutes (CNRS, Universities, INRIA) and private industries. Stimulated also by the presence of a large student community, Grenoble has become a resolutely modern city, with a rich heritage and a vibrant cultural scene. It is a lively and cosmopolitan place, offering a host of leisure opportunities. Winter sports resorts just half an hour from campus and three natural parks at the city limits make running, skiing, trekking, climbing and paragliding easily available.
Grenoble is close to both the Swiss and Italian borders.
