  The Antonio Zampolli Prize 2008

The European Language Resources Association (ELRA) Board has created a
prize to honour the memory of its first president, Professor Antonio
Zampolli, a pioneer and visionary scientist who was internationally
recognized in the field of Computational Linguistics and Human
Language Technologies (HLT). He also contributed much through the
establishment of ELRA and the LREC conference.

Prize will be awarded to individuals whose work lies within the areas
of Language Resources and Language Technology Evaluation with
acknowledged outstanding contributions to their advancements. See the
statutes for details concerning nominations.

The Prize amount is 10,000 euros. The recipient(s) will also receive a
certificate, recognition in the ELRA newsletter and will be featured
on ELRA's website.

The Prize will be awarded for the third time in May 2008 at the LREC
2008 conference in Marrakesh (May 26 - June 1, 2008). Completed
nominations should be sent to the ELRA President Bente Maegaard
(bente at and arrive before November 1st 2007. The ELRA Board
receives many very good nominations, so if we were not able to select
