This year’s edition of the Annual Meeting of WARA M&L will be held in Stockholm on November 21-23, and co-located with the Swedish Language Technology Conference. We welcome you to join us for three days of mostly interactive content, on topics ranging from language modelling, data sharing and synthesis, to graph-based machine learning and game testing. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Ivana von Proschwitz or Johanna Björklund in case of questions, or if you have ideas of how the program could be improved.
