Language Resources and Conference Evaluation – LREC' 12

The eighth international conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC) will be organized in 2012 by ELRA with the support of a wide range of international associations and organizations. Speech and Multimodal Resources are the special topics for this year’s edition.
Since the first LREC held in Granada in 1998, LREC has become the major event on Language Resources (LRs) and Evaluation for Language Technologies (LT).
The aim of LREC is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art, explore new R&D directions and emerging trends, exchange information regarding LRs and their applications, evaluation methodologies and tools, ongoing and planned activities, industrial uses and needs, requirements coming from the e-society, both with respect to policy issues and to technological and organizational ones.
LREC provides a unique forum for researchers, industrials and funding agencies from across a wide spectrum of areas to discuss problems and opportunities,  find new synergies and promote initiatives for international cooperation, in support to investigations in language sciences, progress and innovation in language technologies and development of corresponding products, services and applications, and standards.

LREC' 12, Istanbul, Turkey, May 21st-27th, 2012


This event takes place every four years. It combines the «  Journées d’Études sur la Parole », biennial meetings organized by the AFCP, the « Traitement Automatique des Langues Naturelles »  annual conference organized by ATALA and the RECITAL conference for young researchers  (Rencontre des Étudiants Chercheurs en Informatique pour le Traitement Automatique des Langues).

JEP-TALN-RECITAL' 12, Grenoble, France, June 4th-8th, 2012


Quaero is happy to give its support by granting the RECITAL Best paper Award.

CBMI' 12, Annecy, France, June 27th-29th, 2012


CLEF' 12

CLEF 2012 is the third CLEF conference continuing the popular CLEF campaigns which have run since 2000 contributing to the systematic evaluation of information access systems, primarily through experimentation on shared tasks.
The CLEF Initiative is structured in two main parts:

1.    a series of Evaluation Labs, i.e. laboratories to conduct evaluation of information access systems and workshops to discuss and pilot innovative evaluation activities;
2.    a peer-reviewed Conference on a broad range of issues, including investigation continuing the activities of the Evaluation Labs; experiments using multilingual and multimodal data; in particular, but not only, data resulting from CLEF activities; research in evaluation methodologies and challenges.

Since 2000 the CLEF has played a leading role in stimulating investigation and research in a wide range of key areas in the information retrieval domain, becoming well-known in the international IR community. It has also promoted the study and implementation of appropriate evaluation methodologies for diverse types of tasks and media. Over the years, a wide, strong, and multidisciplinary research community has been built, which covers and spans the different areas of expertise needed to deal with the spread of CLEF activities.
The results were traditionally presented and discussed at annual workshops in conjunction with the European Conference for Digital Libraries (ECDL), now called Theory and Practice on Digital Libraries (TPDL).
Since 2010, CLEF has taken the form of an independent event, constituted by a peer-reviewed conference jointly organized with a set of evaluation labs.

CLEF' 12, Rome, Italy, September 17th-20th, 2012
