Meeting Description:

This 12th Workshop on Asian Language Resources, to be held on December 12,
2016, 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.

The paper submission deadline has been extended to Sept. 28, 2016.

Call for Papers:

To achieve these goals, the workshop calls for original and unpublished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
- 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
