Meeting Description:

The 8th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2017), 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 17-19, 2017 in Poznań, Poland.

Yes, we started 22 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). Among the key speakers were Antonio Zampolli (Italy), Dafydd Gibbon (Germany), Dan Tufiş (Romania), Orest Kossak (Ukraina). Today, we refer to this event as the first LTC. 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 in Poznań at the LTC 2017.

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.

Important Dates/Deadlines:

- Deadline for submission of papers for review: June 15, 2017
- Acceptance/Rejection notification: July 15, 2017

Paper Submission:

The conference accepts papers in English only. Papers (5 formatted pages in the conference format) are due by June 15, 2017 (midnight, any time zone) and should not disclose the author(s) in any manner. In order to facilitate submission we have decided to reduce the formatting requirements as much as possible at this stage.

All submissions are to be made electronically via the LTC 2017 web submission system (EasyChair). Acceptance/rejection notification will be sent by July 15, 2017.

Publication Policy:

Acceptance will be based on the reviewers' assessments (anonymous submission model). The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (hard copy, with ISBN number) and on CD-ROM. The abstracts of the accepted contributions will also be made available via the conference page (during its lifetime). Publication requires full electronic registration and payment of the conference fee (full registration) by at least one co-authors in the due time (dates will be presented at the conference site). One registration fee entitles publication of one paper.

A post-conference volume with extended versions of selected papers is planned to be published. As this was the case in the past, we intend to publish them in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.


Only electronic registration will be possible. Details will be published at

Awards for Best Student Papers:

As at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Language and Technology Conferences (2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015) special awards will be granted to the best student papers. The regular or PhD students (on the date of paper submission) are concerned. More details will be provided at


As in the past, we intend to provide facilities for satellite workshops in the LTC field of interest. We would like them to be an integral part of the conference, open for all LTC participants and taking place in the time limits of the LTC. The acceptance and publication rules need be the same as for all other LTC contributions. The satellite workshops will have their own program committees responsible for the acceptance/rejection decisions and workshop deadlines. The whole LTC program will be open for workshop participants. People interested in organisation of an LTC workshop are kindly requested to contact Zygmunt Vetulani at
