become available to the SLP community. It is now time to critically
assess the quality and utility of these databases, both for Speech
Technology and Speech Research.

The XL-DB workshop thus focuses on three aspects:

 * Collection, Annotation and Access
 * Research and Gaining new Knowledge
 * Application and Service Development

Contributions to these areas are highly welcome. The web-site
features a registration form for the XLDB-mailing list. Take
advantage of this mailing list to receive the most up-to-date
information on this workshop!
