This workshop replaces the workshop entitled "Towards a Resources
Information Infrastructure" that was scheduled to take place
in conjunction with ACL 2003 in Sapporo and that had to be cancelled.
main objectives of the workshop are:
to prepare a map of the language resources landscape that should
facilitate identification of and acces to resources, catalogs,
standards, agencies, networks, projects etc.;
identify shorter and longer term resources needs following from
basic research, application development and funding programs,
resulting in a language resources roadmap;
to launch the International Coordination Committee for Written
Language Resources and Evaluation, aimed at coordinating actions
to prepare and maintain the resources landscape map and roadmap,
in close concertation with COCOSDA, its counterpart for spoken
format of this workshop will be highly interactive.
Presentations of position papers will be short (5-10 minutes) and
speakers will be asked to focus in their oral presentations on proposals
for concrete actions that could be taken up under the auspices of
the International Committee and that would lead to better access
to resources and resources related information and facilities.
The program and the format of this 2-day workshop reflect the goals
