Two scientific meetings on computational approaches for lesser used, lesser standardised and lesser resourced languages have been organized by the Institute for Specialised Communication and Multilingualism at the European Academy Bozen/Bolzano. Both meetings brought together international researchers and representatives of public authorities to discuss the latest advancements and needs concerning the computational support of lesser used languages. Proceedings of both meetings are available.
