Language Resources and Evaluation is the first publication devoted to the
acquisition, creation, annotation, management, and use of language
resources, together with methods for their evaluation. Language resources
include language data and descriptions used to assist and augment language
processing applications, such as written or spoken corpora and lexica,
multimodal resources, grammars, terminology or domain specific databases
and dictionaries, ontologies, multimedia databases, etc., as well as tools
for their acquisition, preparation, annotation, management, customization,
and use. Evaluation of language resources involves assessment the
state-of-the-art for a given technology, comparison of approaches,
validation of results, benchmarking, and assessment of system usability and
user satisfaction.

The journal editors are soliciting submissions on any of the following topics:

- Methods, tools, and procedures for the creation and annotation of mono-
and multi-lingual language resources
- Methods for knowledge extraction and acquisition
- Guidelines, standards, models, and best practices
- Multimedia and multimodal language resources, and their integration
- Ontologies and knowledge representation
- Exploitation of language resources to enhance language processing
applications and sub-tasks
- Language resources in the context of the Semantic Web
- Language resources metadata
- Evaluation methodologies, protocols and measures
- Resources for benchmarking and evaluation, blackbox, glassbox and
diagnostic evaluation

Language Resources and Evaluation is the official journal of the European
Language Resources Association (ELRA), sponsor of the bi-annual LREC
