Meylemans, Paul and Simpkins, Neil (1993). Towards a portable platform for language research and engineering. In: 13th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems and Natural Language, 24-28 May 1993, Avignon, France.


This paper provides an overview of the Advanced Linguistic Engineering Platform (ALEP), an initiative of the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) to provide the natural language research and engineering community in Europe with a versatile and flexible general purpose development environment. The current prototype, its status, results and future plans for this environment are outlined. The architecture of the platform which is intended to support cooperation, exchange and re-use of results and resources, comparative evaluation and application prototyping, is also detailed.
