/Dear Colleagues, /

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, 2013.

/Since very beginning (1995) 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
