3rd International Workshop on Language Technologies and Applications (LTA'18)

Poznań, Poland, 9 - 12 September, 2018

Development of new technologies and various intelligent systems creates new possibilities for information processing. Natural Language Processing (NLP) addresses problems of automated understanding, processing, evaluation and generation of natural human languages. LTA workshop provides a venue for discussion and presenting innovative research in NLP domain, but not restricted, to: computational and mathematical modeling, analysis and processing of any forms (spoken, handwritten or text) of human language, interactions via Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, Computational Intelligence models and applications but also other various applications in decision support systems. We welcome papers covering innovative applications and practical usage of theoretical aspects. The LTA workshop will provide an opportunity for researchers and professionals to discuss present and future challenges as well as potential collaboration for future progress in the field.

Topics

The submitted papers shall cover research and developments in all NLP aspects, such as (however this list is not exhaustive):

  • Computational Intelligence methods applied to language & text processing
  • text analysis
  • language networks
  • text classification
  • language networks, resources and corpora
  • document clustering
  • various forms of text recognition
  • machine translation
  • intelligent text-to-speech (TTS) and speech-to-text (STT) methods
  • authorship identification and verification
  • author profiling
  • plagiarism detection
  • sentiment analysis
  • NLP applications in education
  • knowledge extraction and retrieval from text and natural language structures
  • multi-modal and natural language interfaces
  • innovative language-oriented applications and tools
