The 7th Language and Technology Conference, Poland

The 7th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2015), November 27-29, 2015, Poznań, Poland

CALL FOR PAPERS
The 7th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2015), a meeting organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz University Foundation, will take place on November 27-29, 2015.

Yes, we started 20 years ago! Our tradition goes back to the Language and Technology Awareness Days, a meeting organized in 1995 with the assistance of the European Commission (DG XIII). Among the key speakers were Antonio Zampolli (Italy), Dafydd Gibbon (Germany), Dan Tufiş (Romania), Orest Kossak (Ukraina). Now we refer to this event as the first LTC. Ten years  later, we decided to meet again, and since then the conference is being organized every two years as the “Language & Technology Conference: Human Language Technologies as a
Challenge for Computer Science and Linguistics”.



Fostering language technologies and resources remains an important challenge in the dynamically changing, information-saturated world that motivates us to invite you joining us at the LTC 2015. The meeting will take place in Poznań, in November 2015.

PAPER SUBMISSION
Details (including deadlines) will be announced soon at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl.

PUBLICATION POLICY
Acceptance will be based on the reviewers’ assessments (anonymous submission model). The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (hard copy, with ISBN number) and on CD-ROM. The abstracts of the accepted contributions will also be made available via the conference page (during its lifetime). Publication requires full electronic registration and payment of the conference fee (full registration) in the due time (dates will be presented soon at the conference site).

A post-conference volume with extended versions of selected papers is planned to be published. As this was the case for the last three conferences, we intend to publish them in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

IMPORTANT DATES/DEADLINES
Soon at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl.


REGISTRATION
Only electronic registration will be possible. Details will be published at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl.

AWARDS FOR BEST STUDENT PAPERS
As at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Language and Technology Conferences (2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013) special awards will be granted to the best student papers. The  regular or PhD students (on the date of paper submission) are concerned. More details will be given at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl.

OTHER
Much more important information is or will be provided at the conference site www.ltc.amu.edu.pl. Please check this site from time to time and do not hesitate to ask questions  through ltc15@amu.edu.pl.
