CLARIN-IS has now been registered as a C-centre which means that metadata can be harvested from it. Thus, searches in the Virtual Language Observatory now return metadata from CLARIN-IS. A link to the resources in question accompanies the metadata.
CLARIN-IS was one of the organizers of a conference celebrating the launch of the National Language Technology Program on October 16. The President of Iceland and the Minister of Education, Science and Culture addressed the event and a number of people from academia, IT companies, mass media and the finance sector gave short talks. Bente Maegaard, who is a member of the Program‘s Expert Panel along with Kadri Vider and Steven Krauwer, gave an introductory talk on CLARIN. Around 120 people attended the conference.
