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.

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
  - 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

considerations for community-based linguistic annotation, with a special
emphasis on the Manually Annotated Sub-Corpus (MASC)

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
