Message 1: Announcement: the RELATOR language resources server

Date: Wed, 07 Jun 1995 14:19:43 Announcement: the RELATOR language resources server
From: Elizabeth Hinkelman <hinkelmadfki.uni-sb.de>
Subject: Announcement: the RELATOR language resources server




 Announcing
 the RELATOR language resources server

The RELATOR language resources server was built with the sponsorship of the
Council of the European Commissioners, by the RELATOR project, for the European
Language Resources Association.

The RELATOR server uses wide-area networking software to support distribution
of natural language processing resources. It provides WWW, FTP, resource
installation on the AFS, and email consulting services. This enables users to
get an overview of speech and natural language resources very quickly, identify
and compare resources of possible interest, ftp them if they are available
through RELATOR and, for AFS clients, actually run pre-installed executables on
the client machine for testing or development purposes.

Resources that are currently available through RELATOR include
speech and text corpora, lexicons, natural language processing programs
and tools, and related databases and systems. The process of acquisition
and expansion is ongoing, so watch this space for further developments.

WWW Information about Language Resources

The most effective way to get an overview of natural language resources,
whether available through RELATOR or not, is to browse the multilingual Web
pages (http://www.XX.relator.research.ec.org, where XX stands for the
two-letter country codes of the EU countries, such as de, uk, etc.)

RELATOR Resources

Many resources can be obtained from RELATOR by ftp. Because the RELATOR file
system is replicated across several sites, you can choose the EU site nearest
you by substituting the appropriate two-letter country code for "de" (Federal
Republic of Germany) in the ftp address below.

Resources can also be accessed through AFS. AFS has the additional advantage
that executable files can be shared transparently across compatible hardware:
this means that AFS clients can directly run preinstalled programs.

Resources available only to ELRA members, or that must be purchased or
licenced before use, will not be visible at these interfaces until the
necessary permission is obtained.
