Proceedings of The 12th Language Resources and Evaluation Conference
Welcome to the 12th edition of LREC . . . that should have been in Marseille, first time in France! Unfortunately not now, in May 2020. Now my welcome is completely virtual, to all of you authors of these Proceedings papers and to the colleagues who will look at these. Virtual but not less sincere. This LREC would have also been an occasion to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ELRA. We are proud that ELRA is becoming a mature association. And LREC too. LREC started in 1998, 22 years ago. We hope to welcome you in a non-virtual way next year in Marseille. We will enjoy together not only the conference but also the special “light” of Marseille and the wonderful view of the Mediterranean and the city from the Palais du Pharo.
