Call for papers: HLT4LL 2013 An interdisciplinary symposium on
the contribution of Human Language Technologies to the future of
Language Learning

11-12 November 2013: Stellenbosch University (South Africa) 12
November 2013: Videoconferencing with Radboud University Nijmegen
and KU Leuven Kulak

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Nick Ellis, Maxine Eskenazi, John Nerbonne,
Mathias Schulze, Isabel Trancoso

address the possibilities and challenges of using human language
technologies (HLT) for language learning (LL) (HLT4LL). We define
HLT4LL as any use or integration of language and speech
technology to structure, facilitate (support) and evaluate the
language learning process. To fully acknowledge and address the
complexity of this interdisciplinary domain, the symposium aims
to bring together representatives from various but related
research fields: language and speech technology, computational
linguistics, corpus linguistics (learner and bilingual corpora),
data-driven language learning, (second) language acquisition,
language pedagogy, computer assisted language learning (CALL),
educational technology, semantic web, artificial intelligence,
human-computer interaction (HCI/CHI), etc. This symposium is
intended to provide a state-of-the-art overview of this
interdisciplinary domain for people from academia, educational
institutions, industry, as well as for policymakers.

Registration and participation are free of charge. If you want to
register, send an email to HLT4LL_(at)_let.ru.nl. Mention if you want
to be present in Stellenbosch, Nijmegen or Kortrijk. The number
of available places is limited, we thus might have to select.

CALL FOR PAPERS We hereby solicit contributions to the research
workshop on 12 November 2013. Potential authors are invited to
submit a proposal for a paper or poster session related to any of
the mentioned fields. Submissions can also provide feedback on
the use of current applications, or suggest possible ways of
optimization and propose future developments, based on a
systematic investigation of the subject. All submissions will be
subjected to peer review; only a limited number of contributions
will be presented at the workshop. During the workshop,
presenters will get feedback from the keynote speakers. During
the research workshop, video conferencing facilities will be
available at Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) and
at KU Leuven Kulak (Kortrijk, Belgium), which will allow
researchers to present their work from remote locations. We are
considering inviting presenters to submit full-length papers
after the workshop, which may be published in a special issue of
an authoritative, interdisciplinary and international journal in
the field.
