Meeting Description:

The 7th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2015), a meeting organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Adam Mickiewicz University in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz University Foundation, will take place on November 27-29, 2015 in Poznań, Poland.

Yes, we started 20 years ago! Our tradition goes back to the Language and Technology Awareness Days, a meeting organized in 1995 with the assistance of the European Commission (DG XIII). Ten years later, we decided to meet again, and since then the conference is being organized every two years as the “Language & Technology Conference: Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Science and Linguistics”.

Fostering language technologies and resources remains an important challenge in the dynamically changing, information-saturated world that motivates us to invite you joining us at the LTC 2015. The meeting will take place in Poznań, in November 2015.

Call for Papers:

Since the 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.
