LREC Workshop


Collaborative Resource Development and Delivery


Lütfi Kirdar Istanbul Exhibition and Congress Centre

Istanbul, Turkey

May 27, 2012


To answer the growing need and lower the costs of resource creation and enhancement, there is a movement within the community toward collaborative resource development, including collaborative corpus annotation and collective creation/enhancement of lexical resources and knowledge bases. Collaborative development encompasses both engaging the community in annotation and development of common resources, as well as crowd-sourcing and similar solutions.

This workshop seeks contributions in all dimensions of collaborative resource development and delivery, with a specific focus on case studies and lessons learned. We invite submissions that address but are not limited to the following topics:

- Web services and platforms for collaborative resource development and


- Crowd sourcing for resource development, including studies of efficacy;

- Strategies and issues for open resource distribution;

- Evaluation of collaboratively developed resources;

- Position papers outlining issues and proposing solutions for community-based

collaborative resource development and/or delivery.

--------------- Special Session ---------------

The workshop will include a special session devoted to means and considerations for community-based linguistic annotation, with a special emphasis on the Manually Annotated Sub-Corpus (MASC) (http://www.anc.org/MASC). We invite submissions to this session on the following topics:

- position papers concerning any aspect of collaborative resource development,

including means to get the community fully invested in such efforts;

- case studies describing collaborative development efforts, including assessment

of what works and what doesn't;

- results obtained using collaboratively developed resources;

- the role of standards and best practices in collaboratively developed resources

and contributed annotations.

Special consideration will be given to contributions that have used MASC data in a way that highlights the benefits of community-based annotation.
