Upcoming presentation on Cross-Media Approach for Communication During Crises

SAIL LABS Head of Research, Gerhard Backfried, will hold a presentation on the topic Towards a Cross-Media Approach for Communication During Crises. The talk takes place in the virtual workshop “Crisis Response – Language Tools to the Rescue”, on the 9th of December. 

The event is an initiative of the European Language Resource Coordination, and intends to provide an overview on how language tools can help during crises such as the current corona crisis and how it can assist caregivers, victims and researchers in high-urgency situations.

Gerhard will discuss how a cross-media approach, comprising multilinguality, multimedia and multiple platforms can help to better define the complete picture in the context of disasters and crises.
