Industry Day

The Industry Day will take place on May 23, 2024, during the LREC-COLING 2024 conference week in Torino (Italy).

As a joint conference, LREC and COLING wish to continue to provide a unique forum for researchers, industrials, and funding agencies from across a wide spectrum of areas to discuss issues and opportunities, find new synergies and promote initiatives for international cooperation, in support to investigations in language sciences, progress and innovation in language technologies and development of corresponding products, services and applications, and standards.

LREC-COLING 2024 invites proposals for the Industry Day to be held in conjunction with the Main Conference.

The objective of the Industrial Day is to devote time to industrial achievements and perspectives with presentations by the industrials of their applications and innovation in the field of AI, NLP, and Speech processing. This dedicated Day/Track is also designed to bridge the gap between academic research and real-world industry practices, including evaluation methodologies, and understand better the challenges, including ethics and data protection, and opportunities in the current industrial landscape. Finally, this Day is also meant as a networking platform for conference participants, experts, and professionals to foster collaborations
