AILIA is delighted to provide the opportunity to experience a Mini-Unconference. We welcome back Richard Sikes and Oleksandr Pysaryuk who have organized and moderated the full-day Localization Unconference in Toronto for 6 years. Come see why participants from all over Canada and beyond attend their events.
Spend 2.0 hours with your language industry colleagues discussing localization-related topics, learning from your peers, and networking! The Unconference format is designed to facilitate a spontaneous, free-flowing exchange of ideas in an informal, non-sales environment.
This time-limited Mini-Unconference session is based on the full-day Unconference format in which participants suggest topics, then vote to prioritize the most popular topics that emerge. The ensuing discussion is moderated to ensure fluidity, but is not structured, per se. Prepared presentations are not given, but participants are expected to engage in the conversation to put forth concepts, commentary, and counterpoint.
