LREC2010 Map of Language Resources, Technologies and Evaluation


Help for LREC2010 Map


The contribution to the resource map is mandatory for LREC 2010. The map is intended to monitor the use and creation of language resources (datasets, tools, etc.). We are therefore collecting information on both existing resources that you used for your research and on resources that you created.

This is a first step towards the LREC Map and we have intentionally oversimplified the resource entry form and have constrained the choices of possible values to select (metadata), to make the process as easy and quick as possible for you. We may consider collecting more information at a later stage.

If you do not have any resources to describe (e.g. if your submission is on General issues, Infrastructures, etc.), please tick the box No resources to report with this submission and complete your submission.

If you have more than one resource, please, fill in as many forms as resources you have to describe.

Please note that reviewers will see also the information of the resources that you describe in the form(s).

The oversimplified list of items, e.g. simplified metadata, required per resource (dataset, tool, etc.) consists of:

  1. Resource Type
  2. Size
  3. Resource Name
  4. Resource Production Status
  5. Languages
  6. Modality
  7. Use of the Resource
  8. Resource Availability
  9. Resource URL (if available)
  10. Resource Description

General Instructions

DO NOT feel compelled to use suggested values, if you feel they do not describe fully your case. In every field you can always choose “Other” and specify the most appropriate label for your resource/tool.

Since we are interested in collecting information on the use of existing resources, and resources that you create, it may well be that you have more than one resource to describe. Please, note that you have to fill in one form for each resource you used or created and mentioned in your submission paper (i.e. if in your submission you are describing the creation of a bilingual lexicon from a parallel annotated corpus and you use a given parser, you will have to fill in 3 forms: one for the newly created lexicon, one for the annotated corpus and one for the parser).

You are allowed to enter up to 10 resources and/or tools. If you have more than 10, please contact us.

More details on each item

Resource Type: Here you must indicate the general type of the resource used or created that you are describing.

NB: Here we consider as resources also Guidelines and Standards, Evaluation resources and methodologies, etc.

Resource Name: Full name is preferred for newly created resources, followed by the acronym if any. For existing resources, please use the most commonly used term.

Resource Production Status: Here we want to know if the resource already exists or if you created it. For a newly created resource, we want to know whether the resource production is completed or if work is still in progress. In the case of an existing resource, we want to know whether it has been simply used (‘Existing-used’) or you have updated or modified it (‘Existing-updated’).

Languages: Please use full names and not codes or abbreviations. If you need to list more than 1 language please separate them with commas (e.g. French, Italian, Chinese).

Modality: Choose one of the suggested options or indicate a more appropriate label.

Use of the Resource: Here we are interested in the “actual use” of the resource. For an existing resource, we want to know for which application/task you actually used it in your research. For any newly created resource please indicate the actual/intended use for which it has been built. Otherwise, select: ‘Not applicable’.

NB: In case the resource has more than one use, please select here the most relevant/main application and indicate the others in the “Resource Description” free text box at the end of the template.

Resource Availability:

  • “Freely available”: resources/tools available on the web, at least for research
  • “From Data Centers”: e.g. ELRA, LDC,…
  • “From Owner”: resource distributed directly by the owner
  • “Other”: indicate any other option if needed

Resource URL (if available): Please, indicate the URL of the resource/tool/guidelines described, if it exists, including the URL of the resource documentation if this is available

Resource Description: It is important to fill in this section especially for newly created resources. This is also the place where you can contribute any further detail that you were not able to specify above, e.g. additional uses of the resources, more detailed info about the availability of the resource, etc.
