      ----------------------------------------------



      The World Language Documentation Centre, together with Bangor University and
      Language Standards for Global Business, wishes to announce a major
      multidisciplinary conference to celebrate 2008 as the International Year of
      Languages

      August 22-23, 2008

      To be held at the Bangor University Business Management Conference Centre

      This event is supported by the Welsh Assembly Government and the UK National
      Committee to UNESCO

      The United Nations announced that 2008 would be the International Year of
      Languages, recognizing the importance of multilingualism in supporting
      international understanding. The GUM3C conference will attempt to bridge the
      communications gap between academia and industry, asking (and attempting to
      answer) such questions as:


      How can industry help academia prioritize its research in the 3 Ms?

      What are the developing standards, who are developing them and will they be
      used?

      How will this generate peace, prosperity and global understanding?

      Mor info, details on submission of papers or workshops as well as conference
      registration can be obtained from http://www.gum3c.org
