The official sponsors of the conference are Europhras, Sketch Engine, the European Language Resources Association (ELRA) and the University of Wolverhampton.
EUROPHRAS 2017 will take place at the Strand Palace Hotel, in the heart of London’s West End. Many of the city’s major tourist attractions, shops, businesses, government buildings and entertainment venues are concentrated in the area. The venue is also within walking distance of Covent Garden (a popular shopping and tourist destination) and the Royal Opera House. The Embankment, a path which runs along the River Thames, is also a short walk from the Strand, and the bustling Southbank area is located across the water. Things to do in the area.
