In 2004, 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 Professor Zampolli's specific interest in our field, the ELRA Antonio Zampolli Prize is awarded to individuals and small groups 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 ninth time in June 2022 at the LREC 2022 conference in Marseille (20-25 June, 2022).
Nominations should be sent to the ELRA President Antonio Branco at AntonioZampolli-Prize@elra.info no later than April 25, 2022.
