*Press Release – 2010 ELRA membership

The European Language Resources Association (ELRA) is a non-profit
making organisation founded under the auspices of the European
Commission in 1995, with the mission of providing a clearing house for
language resources and promoting Human Language Technologies (HLT).

ELRA’s missions are to promote Language Resources (LRs) for the Human
Language Technology (HLT) sector, and to evaluate language engineering
technologies. To achieve these two major missions, we offer the
following range of services: identification of LRs, production of LRs,
validation of LRs, evaluation of systems, products, tools, etc.,
related to LRs, distribution of LRs, promotion of best practices and

To play a determining role as a HLT community leader, ELRA also
supports the infrastructure for evaluation campaigns and the
development of a scientific field of LRs and evaluation, e.g. via the
organisation of the LREC conference (see information on LREC 2010
