Assessing Multingual search capabilities on the World Wide Web will
be undertaken by the CEN/TC304 Project Team on Browsing and Matching,
which was approved by CEN/TC304 at its Plenary meeting in June 1998
This Project Team has not yet begun its work, due to other
commitments in standardization work at present, although it might be
expected to begin work around November 1998, when the next CEN/TC304
takes place in Brussels.
The members of the CEN/TC304 Project Team on Browsing and Matching
are as follows:
Project Manager: Marc Kuester, University of Tuebingen (Germany)
Editors: Yves Neuville, Alain La Bonte (acting together in
Yves' company in France); and
Reviewer: John Clews, SESAME Computer Projects (UK).
The CEN/TC304 Project Team on Browsing and Matching will be gathering
information fairly shortly, so any responses in relation to this,
sent directly to me as initial contact point, or via this list, and we
will be glad of any contacts.
For information, here are the original replies which prompted this
