LRL 2011: Addressing the Gaps in Language Resources and Technologies

From the call for papers:

Date: 25.11.2011, half-day (afternoon) + banquet
LTC Workshop paper submission deadline : 05-sep-2011

Theme: Covering the existing gaps in Language Resources (LR) and Technologies (LT) is a challenging task not only for the so-called "Less-Resourced Languages" (LRL) but also for the technologically more advanced ones. Therefore we believe that this workshop will be of general interest for all. Still, the needs of the less-resourced languages are worth being specifically considered in order to reduce the unbalanced situation among languages.


Charting and analysis of major LT and associated LR across languages
Assessing Availability, Quality, Maturity and Sustainability of LT and LR across languages
Identification of gaps in LR and LT, and their impact on Research and Technology development
Recommendations on the way to address these gaps based on experience from well resourced languages
Experience in the production, validation and distribution of LR for less-resourced languages
Experience in the evaluation of LT for less-resourced
Use of pivot languages and language families to address the gaps
Processing of oral languages
Infrastructures for making available LR and LT in all languages, and especially in the less-resourced ones
