Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2012 

Meeting Description:

To answer the growing need and lower the costs of resource creation and enhancement, there is a movement within the community toward collaborative resource development, including collaborative corpus annotation and collective creation/enhancement of lexical resources and knowledge bases. Collaborative development encompasses both engaging the community in annotation and development of common resources, as well as crowd-sourcing and similar solutions. 

Call for Papers:

This workshop seeks contributions in all dimensions of collaborative resource development and delivery, with a specific focus on case studies and lessons learned. We invite submissions that address but are not limited to the following topics: 

- Web services and platforms for collaborative resource development and distribution
- Crowd sourcing for resource development, including studies of efficacy
- Strategies and issues for open resource distribution
- Evaluation of collaboratively developed resources
- Position papers outlining issues and proposing solutions for community-based collaborative resource development and/or delivery

Special Session:

The workshop will include a special session devoted to means and considerations for community-based linguistic annotation, with a special emphasis on the Manually Annotated Sub-Corpus (MASC) (http://www.anc.org/MASC). We invite submissions to this session on the following topics: 

- Position papers concerning any aspect of collaborative resource development, including means to get the community fully invested in such efforts
- Case studies describing collaborative development efforts, including assessment of what works and what doesn't
- Results obtained using collaboratively developed resources
- The role of standards and best practices in collaboratively developed resources and contributed annotations

Special consideration will be given to contributions that have used MASC data in a way that highlights the benefits of community-based annotation.


Submissions may be long papers or short papers, following the formatting guidelines for submissions to the main conference given at:


All submissions should be made using the START system:


Submitters will be asked to provide relevant information about resources used for or resulting from the work described in their papers to the LRE Map (http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2012/?LREMap) and to contribute to the Language Library initiative.

Submissions due: February 15, 2012 
Acceptance notification to authors: March 15, 2012
