Initiated in conjunction with DARPA's Low Resource Languages for Emergent Incidents (LORELEI) Program, the NIST LoReHLT (Low Re-source Human Language Technology) evaluation series seeks to incubate research on fundamental natural language processing tasks in under-resourced languages. While part of the LORELEI program, LoReHLT is an open evaluation workshop that anyone may participate and had its fi rst evaluation in July 2016. A total of eight teams out of 21 registrants participated in the evaluation over three tasks - machine translation, named entity recognition, and situation frame - in the surprise language Uyghur.
