The online session on Wednesday 17th is part of the event "The Munin Conference on Scholarly Publishing", organized by Artic University of Norway. During the session, Delfim Leão will discuss the main findings of the studies conducted over the last few years in the OPERAS consortium within the Special Interest Group (SIG) focused on the topic of Multilingualism, and will also present the main future challenges for Multilingualism on scholarly communication.
