The 10th Workshop on Asian Language Resources focuses on language resources for Asian region, with more than 2200 spoken languages. There are now increasing efforts to build multi-lingual, multi-modal language resources, with varying levels of annotations, through manual, semi-automatic and automatic approaches, as the use of ICTs spreads across the region. Correspondingly, the development of practical applications on these language resources has also been rapidly growing. The workshops on ALR is a series aim to forge a better coordination and collaboration among researchers on these languages, and the NLP community, in general to develop common frameworks and processes for this purpose.
