17 - 19 November 2017, 8th Language & Technology Conference (LTC'17), Poznan, Poland
The 8th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2017) is a meeting organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland and the Adam Mickiewicz University Foundation. Following the tradition of the past events, it is supported by ELRA, FlaReNet, and META-NET. 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.
This year the conference will feature invited talks by Chris Cieri (Penn State University, USA), Verónica Dahl (Simon Fraser University, School of Computing Science, Burnaby B.C., Canada) , Joseph van Genabith (DFKI, Germany), and Jan Wielemaker (University of Amsterdam, Netherlands).
In memory of Alain Colmerauer who left us on May 13, 2017, and to whom LTC 2017 is dedicated, we organize a special session, for which contributions that rely or extend his work, as well concerning himself are solicited. These contributions can be research as well as state of the art papers, mini-tutorials or demos. Besides papers on new results we will highly appreciate contributions reporting on author's former results (already published or not), often remaining unknown to the large public, in particular those that directly refer to the work of Alain Colmeauer and/or his students. Also critical and comparative studies concerning logic programing versus other programming paradigms are welcome.
