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).
