Meeting Description:

2nd Language & Technology Conference:
Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Science and
April 21-23, 2005, Poznan, Poland


You are kindly invited to participate in L&T'05, a conference
organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of
Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland in cooperation with
Adam Mickiewicz University Foundation. This will be held
in parallel to Infosystem Forum 2005 (April 19-21, 2005) and
the 36th Poznan Linguistic Meeting (April 22-24, 2005).

The increasing importance of human language technologies is
a challenge for both the computer science and linguistics communities
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. Globalization,
as well as the recent and planned enlargement of the European Union,
has created a favourable climate for the intensive exchange of novel
ideas, concepts and solutions. The Infosystem Forum plays an integrating
role between computer science research, industry and consumers.
The Poznan Linguistic Meetings have a long tradition as a linguistics
exchange forum. This year we propose to add an explicitly technological
dimension to this meeting and promote the Human Language Technologies
face to the industrial Infosystem audience, linking to the results of
the very successful Language & Technology Awareness Days (Poznan, 1995),
which served as a kick-off event for new HLT activities in Poland. We
therefore invite colleagues from across the world to share with us their
experience, recent results and new visions as well as to learn about our


We invite the submission of original contributions.
The conference topics include but are not limited to:
    * 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 application 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
    * ...


Special sessions are planned:
- ''In memory of Maurice Gross''
- ''In memory of Antonio Zampolli''
Contributions strictly linked to their activities and/or life
are welcome.
Contributors are requested to contact the Chair (e-mail:
vetulani at amu.edu.pl).


Best papers authored by PhD students or regular students will be
distinguished by the L&T awards.

Publication language is English. Paper drafts (4 pages) describing
essential results (ideas, claims, hypotheses) are due by January 15,
2005 (midnight, any time zone) and should not identify the author(s)

(This format is close to the style used in the AAAI publications).

Detailed GUIDELINES for the final submission of accepted papers will be
published at the conference site before February 7, 2005 (acceptance
notification date).

All submissions are to be made electronically via the L&T web
submission/registration system.

(with ISBN number) and on CD-ROM. We plan a post-conference journal
publication of extended versions of the selected papers in Archives
of Control Sciences, Special Issue. The presentation of a paper requires L&T
registration by at least one of the authors. In the case of several
co-authors being registered, student co-authors register free.
