3rd Language & Technology Conference:
Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Science and Linguistics
October 5-7, 2007, Poznan, Poland, www.ltc.amu.edu.pl


FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT


I am pleased to inform you that LTC’07 is scheduled for October 5-7, 2007, 
at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Adam Mickiewicz University, 
Poznan, Poland.

At the beginning of the 7th Framework Program, recently launched by the European Commission, 
Human Language Technologies continue to be a challenge for computer science, linguistics 
and related fields as these technologies become an ever more essential element of our everyday 
technological environment. Since Ajdukiewicz, Tarski, Turing and Chomsky (i.e. since the very 
beginning of the Computer Age) these fields have influenced and stimulated each other. 
Technological, social and cultural globalization has created a favorable climate for 
the intensive exchange of novel ideas, concepts and solutions across initially distant disciplines. 
We aim further contribute to this exchange and we invite you to join us 
at the LTC’07 in October, 2007.


CONFERENCE TOPICS

The conference program will include the following topics:

     * electronic language resources and tools
     * formalisation of natural languages
     * parsing and other forms of NL processing
     * computer modelling of language competence
     * NL user modelling
     * 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
     * methodological issues in HLT
     * prototype presentations
     * intractable language-specific problems in HLT (for languages other than English)
     * HLT standards
     * HLT as foreign language teaching support
     * new challenge: communicative intelligence
     * vision papers in the field of HLT
     * HLT related policies

This list is not closed and we are open to further proposals. The Program Committee is also 
open to suggestions concerning accompanying events (workshops, exhibits, panels, etc). 
Suggestions, ideas and observations may be addressed directly to the LTC Chair at vetulani at amu.edu.pl.
