This 12th Workshop on Asian Language Resources, to be held on December 12, 2016, at Osaka International Convention Center, as part of COLING 2016, focuses on language resources for Asian region, which has more than 2,200 spoken languages. There are now increasing efforts to build multi-lingual, multi-modal language resources, with varying levels of annotations, through manual, semi-automatic and automatic approaches, as the use of ICT spreads across the region. Correspondingly, the development of practical applications on these language resources has also been rapidly growing. The workshops on ALR is a series aiming to forge a better coordination and collaboration among researchers on these languages, and the NLP community, in general to develop common frameworks and processes for this purpose.
This year the workshop is collaborating with ISO/TC37/SC4, which develops international standards for "Language Resources Management", and LRE map campaign of ELRA, in order to make Asian language resource map and efforts.

Text corpora, speech corpora, corpora in other modalities or media (such as video for sign languages or affective computing)
Lexicons, grammars, machine-readable dictionaries, domain specific terminology
Ontologies, knowledge representation, semantic web technologies
