Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: Special Session: Information, Languages, Computing: New Technologies (ILCNT 2013)
AMT-BHI 2013 Conference
October 29-31, 2013, Maebashi, Gumma, Japan

The computational fundamentals of information and languages are still widely open in many aspects and include concepts of information, syntax, semantics, syntax-semantics interfaces, computing and algorithms. Contemporary work on these fundamentals include important developments related to general boundaries on information and language in nature, and specialized restrictions depending on theories and technological applications, in specific domains, contexts, agents, users, etc.

Increasingly, new technologies involve handling complex and, typically, partial information, which can be specified by mixtures of artificial and natural languages. Intelligent developments are predominantly interdisciplinary and range across theoretical developments and applications. Computational approaches that are used in them are dependent on theories of computing and algorithms. This special event is on computational approaches and techniques from the perspectives of biological phenomena of information processing. We hope for a joint event at AMT-BHI 2013 that will contribute to encouraging new theoretical developments and applications, in areas such as:

- Fundamentals of information processing, information exchange
- Models of language interactions between humans and technological systems
- Neuroscience of information processing, reasoning, and language
- New active media technology based on fundamentals of information exchange in nature
