The 6th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2013)
December 7-9, 2013, Poznan, Poland

Call for papers
The 6th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2013), a meeting
organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Adam
Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland in cooperation with the Adam
Mickiewicz University Foundation, will take place on December 7-9,

Since very beginning the meetings of the LTC series continue to
address Human Language Technologies (HLT) as a challenge for computer
science, linguistics and related fields. Fostering language
technologies and resources remains an important mission in the
dynamically changing information-saturated world. We aim at
contributing to this mission and we invite you to join us in that at
LTC 2013 in December 2013, traditionally held in PoznaÅ^Ä, Poland.

Conference topics
The conference topics include the following (the ordering is not

* formalization of natural languages
* parsing and other forms of NL processing
* computer modeling of language competence
* NL user modeling
* NL understanding by computers
* knowledge representation
* man-machine NL interfaces
* Logic Programming in Natural Language Processing
* speech processing
* NL applications in robotics
* text-based information retrieval and extraction
* question answering
* tools and methodologies for developing multilingual systems
* translation enhancement tools
* corpora-based methods in language engineering

Publication policy
Acceptance will be based on the reviewers' assessments (anonymous
submission model). The accepted papers will be published in the

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) by at least one of the co-authors before
October 23, 2013.

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
* Deadline for submission of papers for review: September 4, 2013
* Acceptance/Rejection notification: September 25, 2013
* Deadline for submission of final versions of accepted papers: October
9, 2013
* Conference: December 7-9, 2013

Only electronic registration will be possible. Details will be
published at

Awards for best student papers
As at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Language and Technology Conferences
(2005, 2007, 2009, 2011) 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 at
