This week I am attending XVII Euralex International Congress, a lexicographic conference held between 6th and 10th September 2016 in Tbilisi, Georgia. The theme of this edition of Euralex is Lexicography and Linguistic Diversity.

On Wednesday 7th September I am giving a software presentation on API-powered dictionaries covering the work my colleagues and I have recently been doing on the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) initiative and the Oxford Dictionaries API. Here are the slides of my talk and the paper included in the conference proceedings.

This weekend I’m going to FOSDEM 2016, a two-day event organised by volunteers at the Université Libre de Bruxelles to promote the widespread use of free and open source software. In the past I have been at this conference as a participant and this year I am really happy to contribute with a talk .

I’m presenting the work I’m currently doing at Oxford University Press on API-powered dictionaries for digitally under-represented languages. My talk takes place in the Coding for Language Communities devroom on Sunday 31st January. Here are the slides in PDF.
