Call For Papers

Call for Papers: "Language Technology for a Multilingual Europe"

The Workshop aims at bringing various groups together who are concerned with
the broad topic of "Language Technology for a multilingual Europe". This
encompasses on the one hand representatives from research and development in
the field of language technologies, on the other hand users from quite
divers areas. Two examples of the application of language technology is
(automatic / machine) translation, and processing of texts from the
humanities with methods from language technology, like automatic topic
indexing, text mining, integrating numerous texts and additional information
across languages etc.

These kinds of application areas and research and development in language
technology have in common that they rely on resources (lexica, corpora,
grammars, ontologies etc.), or that they produce these resources. A
multilingual Europe, being supported by language technology, is only
possible if an adequate, interoperable infrastructure of resources,
including the related tooling, is available for all European languages.

In addition it is necessary that the aforementioned and other communities of
developers and users of language technology stand as one, homogenous
community. Only in this way it will be possible to assure the long-term
political acceptance of the topic "language technology" in Europe.

The workshop aims at brining research and development from academia and
industry together, to discuss the aforementioned technical and political
prerequisites for language technology in Europe. Submissions may touch on
the following or other aspects of this overall topic:

- Research and development of language technology in various areas
(Human Language Technology, ICT, eHumanities, ...)
- Infrastructure for resources in language technology
- Prerequisites for interoperability of language technology based
- Language technology and standardization
- "Political perspectives" about requirements and the usefulness of
language technology, from the perspective of research, industry and
various user communities.

The evaluation of abstracts for posters will be anonymous. Hence, the
authors should not be mentioned directly in the abstract. Submissions for
system demonstrations need not to be anonymous.

Length and format: max. 2 pages in 11pt (without references), PDF.
Abstracts should be submitted via the GSCL conference system (category in the system: choose the entry for
the workshop lt­europe).
