MAIN CONFERENCE: 28-29-30 MAY 2008

WORKSHOPS and TUTORIALS: 26-27 MAY and 31 MAY- 1 JUNE 2008

The sixth international conference on Language 
Resources and Evaluation (LREC) will be organised 
in 2008 by ELRA in cooperation with a wide range 
of international associations and organisations, 
including AAMT, AMTA, ACL, ALTA, COCOSDA and 
Oriental COCOSDA, EACL, EAMT, ELSNET, EURALEX, 
GWA, IAMT, KnowledgeWeb, LDC, NEMLAR Network, 
SIGLEX, TEI, Technolangue French Program, WRITE 
and with major national and international 
organisations including the European Commission - 
Information Society and Media, Unit E.2 "Content 
and Knowledge".

CONFERENCE AIMS
In 10 years - the first LREC was held in Granada 
in 1998 - LREC has become the major event on 
Language Resources (LRs) and Evaluation for Human 
Language Technologies (HLT). 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 in language technologies and development 
of corresponding products, services and 
applications, and standards.

*CONFERENCE TOPICS*

Issues in the design, construction and use of 
Language Resources (LRs): text, speech, 
multimodality
- Guidelines, standards, specifications, models and best practices for LRs
- Methodologies and tools for LRs construction and annotation
- Methodologies and tools for the extraction and acquisition of knowledge
- Ontologies and knowledge representation
- Terminology
- Integration between (multilingual) LRs, 
ontologies and Semantic Web technologies
- Metadata descriptions of LRs and metadata for semantic/content markup

Exploitation of LRs in different types of systems and applications
- For: information extraction, information 
retrieval, speech dictation, mobile 
communication, machine translation, 
summarisation, web services, semantic search, 
text mining, inferencing, reasoning, etc.
- In different types of interfaces: 
(speech-based) dialogue systems, natural language 
and multimodal/multisensorial interactions, voice 
activated services, etc.
- Communication with neighbouring fields of 
applications, e.g. e-government, e-culture, 
e-health, e-participation, mobile applications, 
etc.
- Industrial LRs requirements, user needs

Issues in Human Language Technologies evaluation
- HLT Evaluation methodologies, protocols and measures
- Validation, quality assurance, evaluation of LRs
- Benchmarking of systems and products
- Usability evaluation of HLT-based user 
interfaces, interactions and dialogue systems
- Usability and user satisfaction evaluation

General issues regarding LRs & Evaluation
- National and international activities and projects
- Priorities, perspectives, strategies in 
national and international policies for LRs
- Open architectures
- Organisational, economical and legal issues

Special Highlights

LREC targets the integration of different types 
of LRs - spoken, written, and other modalities - 
and of the respective communities. To this end, 
LREC encourages submissions covering issues which 
are common to different types of LRs and language 
technologies.
LRs are currently developed and deployed in a 
much wider range of applications and domains. 
LREC 2008 recognises the need to encompass all 
those data that interact with language resources 
in an attempt to model more complex human 
processes and develop more complex systems, and 
encourages submissions on topics such as:
- Multimodal and multimedia systems, for 
Human-Machine interfaces, Human-Human 
interactions, and content processing
- Resources for modelling language-related 
cognitive processes, including emotions
- Interaction/Association of language and 
perception data, also for robotic systems

PROGRAMME
The Scientific Programme will include invited 
talks, oral presentations, poster and demo 
presentations, and panels.
There is no difference in quality between oral 
and poster presentations. Only the 
appropriateness of the type of communication 
(more or less interactive) to the content of the 
paper will be considered.
