Subject: ISLE (International Standards for Language Engineering) reports

Dear all,

The NIMM (Natural Interaction and MultiModality) working group within 
the ISLE (International Standards for Language Engineering) project 
would like to inform you about the four following reports, which we hope 
may be of interest to you:

Report 8.1: Survey of NIMM data resources including strategic report 
describing current and future user profiles, markets and user needs for 
NIMM resources.
Report 9.1: Survey of annotation schemes and identification of best 
Report 10.1: Survey of best practice and trends in metadata description. 

Report 11.1: Survey of existing tools, standards and user needs for 
annotation of natural interaction and multimodal data.
 Report 11.2: Requirements specification for a tool in support of 
annotation of natural interaction and multimodal data

The reports can be found at under the "Reports".

The reports are the result of one year of surveying whatever could be 
found within the area of multimodal resources, annotation schemes, 
metadata descriptions, tools, current and future market and user needs, 
user profiles and best practice. The reports are very extensive and are 
meant to be up-to-date, and we sincerely hope, that they may be helpful 
to you in some way.

A web-based facility has been set up at the ISLE NIMM website (see 
above) under each of the reports 8.1, 9.1 and 11.1, which enables any 
interested colleague to upload information about a NIMM data resource, 
annotation scheme and/or coding tools, which has not been included 
already. We hope that our colleagues in the emerging NIMM community will 
use the facility to help each other by sharing their information with 
others and contribute to maintaining an up-to-date and valuable pool of 
NIMM information.

Thank you and best regards,

Malene Wegener Knudsen
