1 - 3 September 2021, Third Biennial Conference on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK2021), Zaragoza (Spain) and virtual

Date: 1 - 3 September 2021
Location: Zaragoza (Spain) and virtual
Deadline: Sunday 21 March 2021

This conference aims at bringing together researchers from across disciplines concerned with the acquisition, curation and use of language data in the context of data science and knowledge-based applications. This builds upon the success of the inaugural event held in Galway, Ireland in 2017 and the second LDK in Leipzig, Germany in 2019.

In order to allow more people to attend the Conference physically, and due to the current state in the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, we decided to postpone LDK 2021 to early September. The conference will allow remote presentations by participants who cannot attend the conference in person owing to COVID-19 travelling restrictions, but we do think that physical encounter and gossip leads to better research.

We welcome submission of relevance to the topics listed below. Submissions can be in the form of:
* Long research papers: 10-15 pages;
* Short research or position papers: 6-8 pages;
* Short scientific abstract submissions: be 4-6 pages.
* Short abstracts on new challenges and research ideas ('Crazy New Ideas'): 1-4 pages.

This year, we would like to propose a 'Crazy New Ideas' session that will be the occasion to present challenging research ideas that have not yet been fully explored, or you would like to see in ten years from now. Such ideas should be briefly presented in the form of a short abstract of one to four pages to initiate the discussions, which will also be included in the conference proceedings if permitted by the authors. This is your chance to be creative without censorship. Reviews for these abstract will focus on the potential of ideas to spark interesting discussions.

Topics include Language Data, Knowledge Graphs, Applications for Language, Data and Knowledge, and Use Cases in Language, Data and Knowledge.
