LREC 2006 Conference
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, such as dialogue strategy, written and spoken translation, domain-specific data, multimodal communication or multimedia document processing, and will organise, in addition to the usual tracks, common sessions encompassing the different areas of LRs.

The 2006 Conference emphasises in particular the importance of promoting:

  • synergies and integration between (multilingual) LRs and Semantic Web technologies,
  • new paradigms for sharing and integrating LRs and LT coming from different sources,
  • communication with neighbouring fields for applications in e-government and administration,
  • common evaluation campaigns for the objective evaluation of the performances of different systems,
  • systems and products (also industrial ones) based on large-size and high quality LRs.

LREC therefore encourages submissions of papers, panels, workshops, tutorials on the use of LRs in these areas.
