18th - 19th June 2015
Computer Science School – Complutense University of Madrid (Spain)

Relevant Dates:
* Paper submission: March 26, 2015
* Author Notification: April 23, 2015

We often use languages. First, to communicate between ourselves. Later, to communicate with computers. And more recently, with the advent of networks, we found a way to make computers communicate between themselves. All these different forms of communication use languages, different languages, but that still share many similarities. In SLATE we are interested in discussing these languages.
Being languages such a broad subject, SLATE is organized in three main tracks:

1) HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages The HCL track is where researchers, developers and educators exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work on language design, processing, assessment and applications.
2) CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages The CCL track main goal is to provide a broad space for discussion about the XML mark-up language: examples of usage and associated technologies.
3) HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages The HHL track is dedicated to the discussion of research projects and ideas involving natural language processing and their industrial application.

A detailed topic list for each one of these tracks is presented below.

HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages
Programming language concepts and methodologies; Language and Grammars, design, formal specification and quality; Design of novel language constructs and their implementation; Domain Specific Languages design and implementation; Programming tools; Programming, refactoring and debugging environments; Dynamic and static analysis: Program Slicing; Program Comprehension; Program Visualization and Animation; Compilation and interpretation techniques; Code generation and optimization; Programming Languages teaching methods;

CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages
Semantic Web and Ontologies; Methodologies for specification in XML XML compression, serialization and merging XML Parsing and Querying; XML Structuring XML Transformation XML Security Web Services -- Architectures and Practical Cases Web Technologies and Frameworks XML Libraries and digital repositories E-learning systems, standards and interoperability Serialization languages

HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages
Computational morphology, syntax and semantics; Machine translation and tools for computer assisted translation; Computational terminology and lexicography; Speech synthesis and understanding; Information retrieval, extraction and automatic question answering; Corpora linguistics; NLP system and resource evaluation; Public tools and resources for NLP; Ontologies and knowledge representation; Statistical Methods applied to NLP; Language teaching support tools.

SLATE Publication Policy and Authors Information

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and digital support. In addition, we are currently envisioning several publication follow-ups for SLATE’15 (more information will be posted later on the conference website):
* A post-proceeding volume with revised versions of the papers presented at the conference published by a major editor.
* Special sections on ISI WoK – JCR indexed journals integrating extended versions of the best papers.

Papers should be written in English, using the Springer conference series template, and should not exceed 10 pages. Please refer to the submissions page in the website for details about the document preparation.
