MOVING participated in the International Open Science Conference 2018 held in Berlin, Germany, in March 13-14 2018, by having a stand with demos and videos at the main congress exhibition hall during the first day of the event.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Köhler presenting the MOVING platform
The event was an opportunity for presenting the latest developments in various MOVING-related technologies (video understanding, advanced visualisation, search technologies, smart learning etc.) to the over 200 participants from different sectors (EC, companies, policy makers), including teachers, researchers, linguists, IPR lawyers, public administrators etc. The participants were from different countries and continents (Germany, UK, Spain, Italy, Greece, USA, etc.). This participation made possible the exchange of contacts, for investigating further cooperation possibilities. The MOVING stand featured MOVING flyers and a smart screen to demo the latest version of the MOVING platform. In addition, visiting cards with a QR code and a special link to the platform was distributed to encourage people to try the platform themselves and possibly acquire new users.
