The ISLE project is a cross-Atlantic collaboration, and is funded by the National Science Foundation in the USA and the European Commission in Europe. The project consists of developing and promoting HLT standards and guidelines for language resources, tools and products. Three main areas are covered: multilingual lexicons, Natural Interaction and MultiModality (NIMM), and evaluation of HLT systems.

ELDA is involved in the NIMM (Natural Interaction and MultiModality) part and is in charge of helping to define the criteria for the description of multimodal resources, conducting market surveys in the field of multimodal resources and setting up the guidelines to document such resources.

Start date: January 2000
