The European Language Resource Association (ELRA) is glad to announce the 11th edition of LREC, co-organised with the Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale “Antonio Zampolli” (ILC-CNR) and with the support of international organisations – many from Asia: the Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing (AFNLP), Oriental COCOSDA, the Association of Natural Language Processing - Japan, the Chinese Information Processing Society of China, the Linguistic Data Consortium, Artificial Intelligence Association of Thailand (AIAT), Korean Society for Language and Information (KSLI) and Korean Special Interest Group of Human and Cognitive Language Technology (SIGHCLT), Gengo-Shingen-Kyokai (GSK). Since the first LREC held in Granada in 1998, LREC has become the major event on Language Resources (LRs) and Evaluation for Language Technologies (LT). The aim of LREC is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art, explore new R&D directions and emerging trends, exchange information regarding LRs and their applications, evaluation methodologies and tools, ongoing and planned activities, industrial uses and needs, requirements coming from the e-society, both with respect to policy issues and to technological and organisational ones.
LREC provides a unique forum for researchers, industrials and funding agencies from across a wide spectrum of areas to discuss problems and opportunities, find new synergies and promote initiatives for international cooperation, in support to investigations in language sciences, progress and innovation in language technologies and development of corresponding products, services and applications, and standards.
