                      PROGRAM and CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
    Towards a Roadmap for Multimodal Language Resources and Evaluation

                      An ELSNET workshop at LREC 2002
                      Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain
                      Sunday, June 2 2002 (14:30 - 20:00)

    Aim of the workshop:
    The aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together key players
    in the field of resources and evaluation in order to make a first
    step towards the creation of a broadly supported Roadmap for
    Language Resources, i.e. a broadly supported view on the longer,
    medium and shorter term needs and priorities. This activity
    should be seen in the context of ELSNET's other roadmapping
    activities (see http://www.elsnet.org/roadmap.html), which aim at
    developing a technological roadmap for the whole field of Human
    Language Technologies.
    The purpose of such roadmaps is to give the R&D community an
    instrument to identify opportunities for concertation of their
    activities and better exploitation of possible synergies between
    players all over the world.

    Scope of this workshop:
    As there is no standard model for roadmaps for resources and
    evaluation available, we will narrow the scope of this
    roadmapping workshop to a specific sub-area: Multimodal Language
    Resources and Evaluation. This will make our discussions more
    focused and concrete, and it will also allow us to exploit the
    fact that this workshop will take place the day after the
    workshop dedicated to Multimodal Resources and Evaluation of
    Multimodal Systems (MREMS) in general.
