Language Resources and Evaluation is the first publication devoted to
the acquisition, creation, annotation, management, and use of language
resources, together with methods for their evaluation.  Language
resources include language data and descriptions used to assist and
augment language processing applications, such as written or spoken
corpora and lexica, multimodal resources, grammars, terminology or
domain specific databases and dictionaries, ontologies, multimedia
databases, etc., as well as tools for their acquisition, preparation,
annotation, management, customization, and use. Evaluation of language
resources involves assessment the state- of-the-art for a given
technology, comparison of approaches, validation of results,
benchmarking, and assessment of system usability and user

The journal editors are soliciting submissions on any of the following

· Methods, tools, and procedures for the creation and annotation of
mono- and multi-lingual language resources

· Methods for knowledge extraction and acquisition

· Guidelines, standards, models, and best practices

· Multimedia and multimodal language resources, and their integration

· Ontologies and knowledge representation

· Exploitation of language resources to enhance language processing
applications and sub-tasks

· Language resources in the context of the Semantic Web

· Language resources metadata

· Evaluation methodologies, protocols and measures

· Resources for benchmarking and evaluation, blackbox, glassbox and
diagnostic evaluation

Language Resources and Evaluation is the official journal of the
European Language Resources Association (ELRA), sponsor of the bi-
annual LREC conference.
