Workshop on Future and Emerging Trends in Language Technologies
               Machine Learning and Big Data

We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to FETLT16. 
This workshop has been conceived as a meeting point where experts and professionals 
in the fields of language technologies and other converging areas can discuss the 
state of the art, as well as the emerging trends in the sector.

Language technologies have become a prominent area of research, development and 
innovation. New trends and proposals in this field will have an impressive social 
impact in the near future. Therefore, the workshop will welcome contributions 
describing results and ongoing projects exploring new tendencies, techniques and 
approaches.  Among them, we would like to place a special emphasis on the convergence 
between Language Technologies, Machine Learning and Big Data.

SCOPE
---------------------------------------

The Workshop 'Future and Emerging Trends in Language Technology, Machine Learning 
and Big Data' has been conceived as a meeting point where experts and professionals 
in the fields of language technologies and other converging areas will discuss the 
state of the art, as well as the emerging trends in the sector. The main objective 
of this workshop is to serve as a bridge between academia and industry, as well as 
representatives of agencies that coordinate research and innovation policies. The 
workshop thus guarantees a multidisciplinary common spirit in which experts will be 
able to present and analyze the trends that will shape the immediate future as well 
as the mid-term vision in this sector.

Following this approach, the organizing committee of the workshop welcomes the reception 
of papers under the following categories:

* New applications of key consolidated approaches

* Emerging research

* Challenge papers
