    Subject: Evaluation of Portuguese processing: 27 June in Faro, Portugal


    Preparatory action for evaluation contests for Portuguese processing Faro, Portugal, 27 June 2002 (post-workshop at PorTAL)

    Evaluation is nowadays recognized as a driving wheel of R&D in natural language processing, being both a research activity in its own and an effective way to boost collaboration and progress to achieve a given result.

    Providing means to evaluate the area is one of the goals the Computational Processing of Portuguese project, and therefore we invite everyone concerned with Portuguese NLP or language engineering to participate at a one-day session to define courses of action and procedures to arrange evaluation contests in several application areas.
