Seven LDC staff members will be presenting current work on topics including trends in HLT research, building language resources for autism spectrum disorders, data management plans, rapid development of morphological analyzers for typologically diverse languages, selection criteria for low resource language programs, multi-language speech collection for NIST LRE, novel incentives for collecting data and annotation from people, and more.
