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, otherwise an online or hybrid alternative
will be set up.

Conference aims
LREC is the major event on Language Resources (LRs) and Evaluation for
Language Technologies (LT). 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
and development of corresponding products, services and applications,
and standards.

Tracks for submission
LREC 2022 invites the submission of papers on original and unpublished
research covering all aspects of LRs & Evaluation of LTs, within
natural language processing and computational linguistics. The

LREC2022 hot topics
Multilingualism and Language Technology for All
Language Resources for Emergency Needs
Machine Learning and Multimodality

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
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. After LREC, such Language
Resources will be made available to the community within the share-LRs
repository set-up by ELRA, in compliance with the licenses indicated
by right-holders. 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, poster and
demo presentations in addition to a keynote address by the winner of
the Antonio Zampolli Prize.
An Industrial Track to report on state of the art within industry and
commercial achievements, for which there will be a separate Call, will
also be organized
