To celebrate ELRA 10th anniversary, a 2-day workshop dedicated to
Human Language Technologies (HLT) Evaluation will be held in
Malta on December 1st and 2nd.
In organizing this workshop, ELRA, whose main missions over the
past decade have been to promote language resources for the HLT
sector, and to promote evaluation language engineering
technologies, intends to bring together the HLT Evaluation key
players to discuss the HLT evaluation from various perspectives:
general principles and purposes, technologies, current evaluation
projects (past and on-going), worldwide initiatives, etc. All the
sessions of the full event are described in the preliminary
Workshop programme (www.elra.info). The
main objective of the workshop is to allow a fruitful
brainstorming on the HLT evaluation starting from what is being
done today and what should be done better, differently, etc. All
sectors of HLT will be addressed (speech technologies, machine
translation and speech to speech translation, information
retrieval/filtering, multimodal interfaces, etc.).
The number of participants will be limited to 50 to make the
event very productive.
Among the speakers who have confirmed their participation are:
Nick Campbell, Jean Carletta, Christian Fluhr, Dafydd Gibbon,
Tony Hartley, Harald Höge, Maghi King, Gianni Lazzari, Joseph
Mariani, Keith Miller, Patrick Paroubek, Carol Peters, Martin
Rajman, Gregor Thumair, and European Commission representatives.
The workshop will start on Thursday December, 1st at 09:00 and
close on Friday December, 2nd at 15:45. It will take place at the
Victoria Hotel in Sliema (Malta). For all venue details, please
