*4. **My LREC Conference program*

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the years, the number of sessions and papers which compose the LREC 
2012 programme have become huge. To help you select the sessions you are 
interested in and design your own programme, we have developed the tool 
MyProgram <http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2012/spip.php?page=program> 
<http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2012/spip.php?page=program>. With this 
tool, you can plan your attendance to the conference (day-by-day, or for 
the 3 days) and produce the corresponding PDF which you can either print 
or import in your calendar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

*5. DocCollection*

------------------------------------------------------------------------

A collection of manuscripts and hardcopies of documents will take place 
at LREC 2012 in order to constitute a corpus for document analysis and 
structuring. If you would like to contribute, please get in touch with 
the DocCollection team led by Maÿlis Bodin (bodin at elda.org 
<boding at elda.org>). A prize will be awarded by random drawing.
