Upcoming Event: Lynx Coding Sprint

Several members of the Lynx Consortium will be meeting during the last week of February (25th-1st of March) for a "coding sprint". The idea is to work side by side on the different work packages to give a boost to the development of the Legal Knowledge Graph and the corresponding infrastructure. 

The gathering will take place in the facilities provided by UPM in Cercedilla (Madrid). The agenda is still being decided and will be published shortly. 

TeReCom Workshop celebrated in Groningen

The 2nd Workshop on Technologies for Regulatory Compliance was celebrated in Groningen, the Netherlands, within the 31st International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems.

The workshop took place on the 12th of December, while the conference was held during the two following days. Works presented both at the workshop and main track were of much interest for Lynx, and since several partners of Lynx consortium were attending, it was a perfect chance to discuss the applicability of such new insights and further steps on the project.

Lynx presented at ECETT/PACOR in Madrid

This week the XVI ECETT conference (Encuentros Complutenses en torno a la Traducción) took place in Madrid, simultaneously with the International Symposium on Parallel Corpora (PACOR).

During the three conference days, a poster created by Lynx partners Elena Montiel Ponsoda and Patricia Martín Chozas was exposed, presenting Lynx platform as a tool for legal documentation and legal terminology management.

It was a great chance to engage translation professionals’ attention on the advantages of Semantic Web technologies and to discover new collaboration possibilities.
