Call For Papers

This 12th Workshop on Asian Language Resources, to be held at Osaka International Convention Center, annexed to COLING 2016, focuses on language resources for Asian region, which has more than 2,200 spoken languages. There are now increasing efforts to build multi-lingual, multi-modal language resources, with varying levels of annotations, through manual, semi-automatic and automatic approaches, as the use of ICT spreads across the region. Correspondingly, the development of practical applications of these language resources has also been rapidly advancing. The ALR workshop series aims to forge a better coordination and collaboration among researchers on these languages and in the NLP community in general, to develop common frameworks and processes for promoting these activities. This year's workshop collaborates with ISO/TC 37/SC 4, which develops international standards for "Language Resources Management", and ELRA, which is campaigning LRE map, in order to integrate efforts to develop an Asian language resource map.

To achieve these goals, the workshop calls for original and unpublished technical, strategy, policy and survey papers concerning, but not limited to, the following topics:
*Text corpora, speech corpora, corpora in other modalities or media (such as video for sign languages or affective computing)
*Lexicons, grammars, machine-readable dictionaries, domain specific terminology
*Ontologies, knowledge representation, semantic web technologies
*Infrastructure for constructing and sharing language resources
*Exchange and annotation schemata, exchange formats
*Standards or specifications for language resources and content management
*Language resources for basic NLP tasks (word segmentation, named entity recognition, syntactic analysis, semantic analysis, discourse analysis, speech recognition, speech synthesis, etc.)
*Language Resources for HLT applications (such as text generation, information retrieval, information extraction, question answering, machine translation, speech translation, reasoning, affective computing, etc.)
*Strategies and priorities for cooperation and collaboration
*Licensing and copyright issues

Please follow the above link to submit your papers.
