EDDI is designed to provide an annual European forum where DDI users from Europe can gather to showcase their work and their progress toward DDI adoption, as well as discuss any questions or challenges they may have about the standard.
EDDI10 includes 20 presentations on case studies, interplay of DDI with other standards, software implementations, reports of working groups, and discussion sessions. Peter Wittenburg, Technical Director of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, will deliver the plenary speech.
