We would like to invite our close friends and collaborators during these years to participate in this event in a simple way. You could send a tweet with the hashtag #ixa25. We welcome all kinds of contributions: just greetings, congratulations, a short story, short description of the relationship with the group, when/how did you met us, using the language you want.

Up to now some of our collaborators sent us greeting videos, 28 so far! Those videos and tweets are an informal “picture” of those who think Language Technology can be a nice tool to promote the use of less-resourced languages and to improve human communication.;-)
