* To investigate the situation of Asian Language Resources, and to make a catalog of the result of this investigation
* To investigate and discuss the problems related to the standards and specification on creating and sharing various levels of language resources
* To promote communications between developers and users of various language resources in order to fill the gap between language resources and practical applications
* To launch a roadmap for Asian Language Resources

To achieve these goals, we call for the technical papers and the resource reports concerning, but not limited to the following issues.

* Infrastructure for constructing and sharing language resources
* Meta data for resource classification and discovery
* Exchange and annotation schemata
* Exchange formats
* Standards or specifications for language resources
* Standards or specifications for content management
* Language resources for basic NLP tasks (word segmentation, named entity recognition, syntactic analysis, semantic analysis, discourse analysis, etc.)
* Language Resources for HLT applications, such as information retrieval, information extraction, question answering, machine translation, etc.
* Text corpora
* Lexicons
* Grammars
* Machine-readable dictionaries
* Ontology
* Strategies and priorities for EU-US and Asian cooperation
* Strategies for collaboration with international/regional public orgnizations, such as UNESCO, ACCU, etc.
* Licensing and copyright issues

The technical papers should include original contributions to this area, and the resource reports should include the precise description of the existing resources or resources under development. For attributes of the resource description, refer to The workshop will be comprise of two parts, the presentation of technical papers, and an open discussion based on the resource reports aiming at introducing language resources of less computerised languages, and exchanging the experiences, resources and tools.
