Date: 08-Feb-2006 From: Helene Mazo <mazoelda.org> Subject: LREC 2006 A Zampolli Prize: Call for Nomination
The ELRA Board has created a prize to honour the memory of its first president, professor Antonio Zampolli, a pioneer and visionary scientist who was internationally recognized in the field of computational linguistics and Human Language Technologies (HLT). He also contributed much through the establishment of ELRA and the LREC conference.
To reflect Antonio Zampolli's specific interest in our field, the Prize will be awarded to individuals whose work lies within the areas of Language Resources and Language Technology Evaluation with acknowledged contributions to their advancements.
The prize will be awarded for the second time in May 2006 at the LREC 2006 conference in Genoa (22-28 May, 2006). Completed nominations should be sent to the ELRA president Bente Maegaard (bentecst.dk) and arrive by March 1st 2006.
Nominations that were received for the prize in 2004, will be taken into account if the nominators confirm their nomination.
On behalf of the ELRA Board Bente Maegaard President
