DESCRIPTION

The life of a language resource (LR), from its mere conception and
drafting to its adult phases of active exploitation by the HLT
community, varies considerably. Ensuring that language resources be a
part of a sustainable and endurable living process represents a
multi-faceted challenge that certainly calls for well-planned
anti-neglecting actions to be put into action by the different actors
participating in the process. Clearing all IPR issues, exploiting best
practices at specification and production time are just a few samples of
such actions. Sustainability and lifecycle management issues are thus
concepts that should be addressed before endeavouring into any serious
LR production.





TOPICS

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

-     Which fields require LRs and which are their respective needs?

-     What needs to be part of a LR storyboard? What points are we
missing in its design?

-     General specifications vs. detailed specifications and design

-     Annotation frameworks and layers: interoperable at all?

-     Should creation and provision of LRs be included in higher
education curriculae?

-     How to plan for scalable resources?

-     Language Resource maintenance and improvement: feasible?

-     Sharing language resources: how to bear this in mind and implement
it? Logistics of the sharing: online vs. offline

-     Centralised vs. decentralised, and national vs. international
management and maintenance of LRs

-     What happens when users create updated or derived LRs?

-     Sharing language resources: legal issues concerned

-     Sharing language resources: pricing issues concerned, commercial
vs. non-commercial use

-     Do LR actors work in a synchronised manner?

-     What should be the roles of the different actors?

-     What are the business models and arrangements for IPRs?

-     Self-supporting vs. subsidised LR organisations

-     Other general problems faced by the community
