The 6th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2013), December
7-9, 2013, Poznan, Poland

CALL FOR PAPERS The 6th Language and Technology Conference (LTC
2013), a meeting organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and

Since very beginning 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 we invite you to join us in

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 of the co-authors before October
23, 2013.

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

* Deadline for submission of papers for review: September 4, 2013
* Acceptance/Rejection notification: September 25, 2013

AWARDS FOR BEST STUDENT PAPERS As at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th
Language and Technology Conferences (2005, 2007, 2009, 2011)
special awards will be granted to the best student papers. The
regular or PhD students (on the date of paper submission) are
