*Establishing the International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN)*

12 major NLP organisations announce the establishment of the ISLRN, a 
Persistent Unique Identifier, to be assigned to each Language Resource.

On November 18, 2013, 12 NLP organisations have agreed to announce the 
establishment of the International Standard Language Resource Number 
(ISLRN), a Persistent Unique Identifier, to be assigned to each Language 
Resource. Experiment replicability, an essential feature of scientific 
work, would be enhanced by such unique identifier. Set up by ELRA, LDC 
and AFNLP/Oriental-COCOSDA, the ISLRN Portal will provide unique 
identifiers using a standardised nomenclature, as a service free of 
charge for all Language Resource providers. It will be supervised by a 
steering committee composed of representatives of participating 
organisations and enlarged whenever necessary.
