To celebrate ELRA 10th anniversary, a 2-day workshop dedicated to Human 
Language Technologies (HLT) Evaluation will be held in Malta on December 
1st and 2nd.

In organizing this workshop, ELRA, whose main missions over the past decade 
have been to promote language resources for the HLT sector, and to promote 
evaluation language engineering technologies, intends to bring together the 
HLT Evaluation key players to discuss the HLT evaluation from various 
perspectives: general principles and purposes, technologies, current 
evaluation projects (past and on-going), worldwide initiatives, etc. All 
the sessions of the full event are described in the preliminary Workshop 
programme (<file:///www.elra.info>www.elra.info).  The main objective of 
the workshop is to allow a fruitful brainstorming on the HLT evaluation 
starting from what is being done today and what should be done better, 
differently, etc. All sectors of HLT will be addressed (speech 
technologies, machine translation and speech to speech translation, 
information retrieval/filtering, multimodal interfaces, etc.).

The number of participants will be limited to 50 to make the event very 

Among the speakers who have confirmed their participation are: Nick 
Campbell, Jean Carletta, Christian Fluhr, Dafydd Gibbon, Tony Hartley, 
Harald Höge, Maghi King, Gianni Lazzari, Joseph Mariani, Keith Miller, 
Patrick Paroubek, Carol Peters, Martin Rajman, Gregor Thumair, and European 
Commission representatives.
