On May 22nd 2012, SALTMIL and AfLaT held a full-day workshop on "Language technology for normalisation of less-resourced languages". This was a satellite workshop preceding the biennial LREC (Language Resources and Evaluation Conference) in Istanbul, Turkey.
The program started with the invited talk presented by Sjur Moshagen Nørstebø, followed by two sessions of four oral presentations and a poster session with eight contributed poster papers. All the presentations and posters stimulated many questions and discussions.
At 17.30, after a brief presentation by Francis Tyers and Guy De Pauw, an interesting discussion took place on "Language technology for normalisation of less-resourced languages" and then the workshop was closed by thanking the audience for their participation in the whole workshop.
About fourty five people were present in total, from a wide range of countries, and representing work on a variety of less resourced languages.
