2nd Language & Technology Conference: Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Science and Linguistics April 21-23, 2005, Poznañ, Poland CALL FOR PAPERS --------------- Dear Colleagues, You are kindly invited to participate in L&T'05, a conference organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznañ, Poland. This will be held in parallel to Infosystem Forum 2005 (April 19-21, 2005) and the 36th Poznañ Linguistics Meeting (April 22-24, 2005). The increasing importance of human language technologies is a challenge for both the computer science and linguistics communities as these technologies become an ever more essential element of our everyday technological environment. Since Ajdukiewicz, Tarski, Turing and Chomsky (i.e. since the very beginning of the Computer Age) these fields have influenced and stimulated each other. Globalisation, as well as the recent and planned enlargement of the European Union, has created a favourable climate for the intensive exchange of novel ideas, concepts and solutions. The Infosystem Forum plays an integrating role between computer science research, industry and consumers. The Poznañ Linguistics Meetings have a long tradition as a linguistics exchange forum. This year we propose to add an explicitly technological dimension to this meeting and promote the Human Language Technologies face to the industrial Infosystem audience, linking to the results of the very successful Language & Technology Awareness Days (Poznañ, 1995), which served as a kick-off event for new HLT activities in Poland. We therefore invite colleagues from across the world to share with us their experience, recent results and new visions as well as to learn about our achievements. CONFERENCE TOPICS ----------------- We invite the submission of original contributions. The conference topics include but are not limited to: * electronic language resources and tools * formalisation of natural languages * parsing and other forms of NL processing * computer modelling of language competence * NL user modelling * NL understanding by computers * knowledge representation * man-machine NL interfaces * NL application in robotics * text-based information retrieval and extraction, question answering * tools and methodologies for developing multilingual systems * translation enhancement tools * methodological issues in HLT * prototype presentations * intractable language-specific problems in HLT (for languages other than English) * HLT standards * HLT as foreign language teaching support * new challenge: communicative intelligence * vision papers in the field of HLT SPECIAL SESSIONS ---------------- Special sessions are planned: - "In memory of Maurice Gross" - "In memory of Antonio Zampolli" Contributions strictly linked to their activities and/or life are welcome. Contributors are requested to contact the Chair (e-mail: vetulani_(on)_amu.edu.pl).
