To celebrate ELRA’s 10th anniversary, a 2-day workshop dedicated to Human Language Technologies (HLT) Evaluation was held in Malta on December 1st and 2nd 2005.
In organizing this workshop, ELRA, whose main missions over the past decade have been to promote language resources for the HLT sector, and to promote evaluation of language engineering technologies, intended to bring together the HLT Evaluation key players to discuss the HLT evaluation from various perspectives: general principles and purposes, technologies, past and on-going evaluation projects, worldwide initiatives, etc.
The main objective of the workshop was to allow a fruitful brainstorming on the HLT evaluation starting from what is being done today and what should be done better, differently, etc. All sectors of HLT were be addressed (speech technologies, grammars and parsing, machine translation and speech to speech translation, information retrieval/filtering, multimodal interfaces, etc.). The number of participants was limited to about 50 to make the event very productive.
