WILDRE – the 4th workshop on Indian Language Data: Resources and Evaluation is being organized in Miyazaki, Japan on 12h May 2018 under the LREC platform. India has a huge linguistic diversity and has seen concerted efforts from the Indian government and industry towards developing language resources. European Language Resource Association (ELRA) and its associate organizations have been very active and successful in addressing the challenges and opportunities related to language resource creation and evaluation. It is therefore a great opportunity for resource creators of Indian languages to showcase their work on this platform and also to interact and learn from those involved in similar initiatives all over the world. The broader objectives of the WILDRE will be
To map the status of Indian Language Resources
To investigate challenges related to creating and sharing various levels of language resources
To promote a dialogue between language resource developers and users
To provide opportunity for researchers from India to collaborate with researchers from other parts of the world

January 18, 2018 Paper submissions due in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone
February 15, 2018 Paper notification of acceptance
March 01, 2018 Camera-ready papers due

Full papers (10 pages)
Short papers (work in progress – 5 pages)
Posters (innovative ideas/proposals, research proposal of students)
Demo (of working online/standalone systems)
WILDRE-4 will have a special focus on Demos of Indian Language Technology. In the past few years, as more resources have been developed and made available, there has been an increased activity in developing usable technology using these. WILDRE-4 would like to encourage and widen the Demo track to allow the community to showcase their demos and have mutually beneficial interactions with each other as well as resource developers.
WILRE-4 will invite technical, policy and position paper submissions on the following topics related to Indian Language Resources:
Digital Humanities, heritage computing
Corpora - text, speech, multimodal, methodologies, annotation and tools
Lexicons and Machine-readable dictionaries
Ontologies, Grammars
Language resources for basic NLP, IR, Machine Translation and Speech Technology tasks, tools and Infrastructure for constructing and sharing language resources
Standards or specifications for language resources applications
Licensing and copyright issues
Both submission and review processes handled electronically. The review process will be double-blind. The workshop website will provide the submission guidelines and the link for the electronic submission.
When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc.
