    WILDRE -- the 2nd workshop on Indian Language Data: Resources and
    Evaluation is being organized in Reykjavik, Iceland on 27th May,
    2014 under the LREC platform.  India has a huge linguistic diversity
    and has seen concerted efforts from the Indian government and
    industry towards developing language resources. European Language
    Resource Association (ELRA) and its associate organizations have
    been very active and successful in addressing the challenges and
    opportunities related to language resource creation and evaluation.
    It is therefore a great opportunity for resource creators of Indian
    languages to showcase their work on this platform and also to
    interact and learn from those involved in similar initiatives all
    over the world.
    The broader objectives of the WILDRE will be

      * To map the status of Indian Language Resources
      * To investigate challenges related to creating and sharing
        various levels of language resources
      * To promote a dialogue between language resource developers and
      * To provide opportunity for researchers from India to collaborate
        with researchers from other parts of the world

              *DATES *

Though our area of interest covers all NLP/language technology related 
activity for Indian languages, we would like to focus on the resource 
creation in the following areas-

  * Text corpora
  * Speech corpora

Both submission and review processes will handled electronically using
the Start interface of the LREC website. The workshop website will

When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to
provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e.
also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used
for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your
research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the
described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse,
replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc...
