LREC 2022 First Call for Papers
The European Language Resources Association (ELRA) is glad to announce the 13th edition of LREC, organised with the support of national and international organisations.
We hope to be able to organise a face-to-face conference, but in the unfortunate event that physical gatherings will not be yet allowed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, an online alternative will be set up.
LREC is the major event on Language Resources (LRs) and Evaluation for Human Language Technologies (HLT). LREC aims 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, on-going and planned activities, industrial uses and needs, requirements coming from e-science and e-society, with respect to both scientific/technological issues as well as policy and organisational ones.
LREC provides a unique forum for researchers, industrials and funding agencies from across a wide spectrum of areas to discuss issues and opportunities, find new synergies and promote initiatives for international cooperation, in support of investigations in language sciences, progress in language technologies (LT) and development of corresponding products, services and applications, and standards.
Issues in the design, construction and use of LRs: text, speech, sign, gesture, image, in single or multimodal/multimedia data
Exploitation of LRs in systems and applications
LRs in the age of deep neural networks
Issues in LT evaluation
General issues regarding LRs & Evaluation
In addition to describing your LRs in the LRE Map – now a normal step in the submission procedure of many conferences – LREC recognises the importance of sharing resources and making them available to the community. When submitting a paper, you will be offered the possibility to share your LRs (data, tools, web-services, etc.), uploading them in a special LREC repository set up by ELRA. Your LRs will be made available to all LREC participants before the conference, to be re-used, compared, analysed. This effort of sharing LRs, linked to the LRE Map for their description, contributes to creating a common repository where everyone can deposit and share data.
The Scientific Programme will include invited talks, oral presentations, poster and demo presentations, in addition to a keynote address by the winner of the Antonio Zampolli Prize.
We will also organise an Industrial Track for which there will be a separate Call.
LREC2022 asks for full papers from 4 pages to 8 pages (plus more pages for references if needed) , which must strictly follow the LREC stylesheet which will be available on the conference website.
The Proceedings will include both oral and poster papers, in the same format.
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.
