Sparking Synergies: Bringing Research and Practice Together @ ASIST '05 (ASIS&T 2005)
Westin Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina, October 28 - November 2, 2005


This session will focus on important issues in designing and implementing multilingual digital libraries. A group of experts who have both research and implementation experiences with multilingual digital libraries will join the panel to present and discuss:

(1) the state of the art of searching a broad range of spoken word multilingual digital collections,

(2) research and development of a multilingual cross-repository retrieval prototype, and

(3) implementation of an open source digital library system that supports creating multilingual digital libraries.

Discuss this on the ASIS&T 2005 Annual Meeting wiki!
