Abstract: This panel will discuss what they see as the essential resources needed to support Natural Language Processing research in the future. This is an opportunity to explore questions of where NLP research is heading and to plan for the creation of appropriate resources. Looking ahead is necessary for builders of resources since they are costly in terms of both time and money. This community should concentrate their efforts on creating resources that researchers will need. This panel is a modest attempt to identify some of these needs and to inspire us to find ways meet them.
