Workshop on Multimodal Corpora: Advances in Capturing, Coding and Analyzing Multimodality, 7th International Conference for Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2010), 2010
This document proposes SALEM (Statistical AnaLysis of Elan files in Matlab) as a toolbox for the statistical analysis of data from human-machine interaction that are annotated in Elan. The authors show how SALEM allows to analyze annotations quantitatively in an effective manner. The paper introduces the position of SALEM in the data processing chain, its functionalities, and how it contributes to the evaluation process.
