> In recent years more and more standards related to the representation
>

> 
> different organizations (e.g., ISO, Oasis, LISA, W3C, TEI etc.). While

> 
> modeling language (e.g., LAF, OLAC, IMDI, etc), other standards in use

> in the community are originally geared to the representation of
> 
> properties of texts (e.g., TEI). Still others have been defined with
> 
> broader, not inherently language or text-related purposes in
>

> The formal standardisation process is only one aspect of the evolution

>

> is actually
> 
> applied. The workshop will concentrate on standards which are in use,
> 
> experiences with standards as well as tools
> 
> to enhance the use of standards. In particular we will encourage
> 
> contributions in the following areas:
> 
>  
> 
> (a) experiences with different types of standards:
> 
>  
> 
> - research contexts inviting/impeding the use of standards
> 
> - standards and exploitation of LRs
> 
> - use of language vs. text encoding standards
> 
> - use of standards for representation vs. linguistic description
> 
> - standards for different types of LRs (corpora, archives,
> 
>   dictionaries, spoken vs. written language etc)
> 
> - standards used in the localization process
> 
> - competing standards (comparison of competing standards,
> 
>   motivations for preferring one standard over another)
> 
>  
> 
>  
> 
> (b) use of standards from different vantage points:
> 
>  
> 
> - data providers (support for standards, e.g., data category
> 
>   registry)
> 
> - data users (e.g., standards supporting resource exploitation)
> 
> - tool developers (e.g., corpus annotation tools supporting
> 
>   standards, standards aware localization tools)
> 
>  
> 
>  
> 
> (c) new horizons in standardization
> 
>  
> 
> - standardization for resource management (e.g., resource
> 
>   validation) and best practices
> 
> - efforts to make language resource-related standards communicate
> 
>   with each other (e.g., mappings, upper structures)
> 
> - interaction of language resource-related standards with
> 
>   non-language data standards
> 
> - special requirements for multilingual resources
> 
> - special requirements for multimodal resources
> 
> - methodologies for the evaluation of standards
