SLATE 2012 - Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies

http://slate.di.uminho.pt/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------

CALL FOR PAPER

June 21st and 22nd, 2012

University of Minho, Braga, Portugal

We often use languages. First, to communicate between

ourselves. Later, to communicate with computers. And more recently,

with the advent of networks, we found a way to make computers

communicate between themselves. All these different forms of

communication use languages, different languages, but that still

share many similarities. In SLATE we are interested in discussing

these languages.

SLATE is born from a group of researchers that share the fascination

by the way languages work, being them natural or artificial. This

group organized over a decade two different conferences: XATA, with

interest in XML as the de facto language for computer interaction;

and CoRTA, with interest in Compilers and related techniques to

understand computer languages. SLATE arrives as the generalization of

these two conferences into the abstraction of languages.

Being languages such a broad subject, SLATE is organized in three

main tracks:

1. HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages

2. CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages

3. HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages

A detailed topic list for each one of these tracks is presented below.

HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages

- Programming language concepts and methodologies.

- Language and Grammars, design, formal specification and quality

- Design of novel language constructs and their implementation;

- Domain Specific Languages design and implementation;

- Programming tools;

- Programming, refactoring and debugging environments;

- Dynamic and static analysis: Program Slicing

- Program Comprehension

- Compilation and interpretation techniques;

- Code generation and optimization;

- Runtime techniques and Memory management;

- Virtual machines;

CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages

- Semantic Web and Ontologies;

- Methodologies for specification in XML;

- XML compression, serialization and merging;

- XML Parsing and Querying;

- XML Structuring;

- XML Transformation;

- XML Security;

- Web Services -- Architectures and Practical Cases;

- Web Technologies and Frameworks;

- XML Libraries and digital repositories;

- E-learning systems, standards and interoperability;

- Serialization languages.

HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages

- Computational morphology, syntax and semantics;

- Machine translation and tools for computer assisted translation;

- Computational terminology and lexicography;

- Speech synthesis and understanding;

- Information extraction and automatic question answering;

- Corpora linguistics;

- NLP system evaluation;

- Public tools and resources for NLP;

- Ontologies and knowledge representation;

- Statistical Methods applied to NLP;

- Language teaching support tools.

SLATE PUBLICATION POLICY AND AUTHORS INFORMATION

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings,

under an ISBN reference, on paper and digital support. They will also

integrate the OASIcs series: http://www.dagstuhl.de/publikationen/oasics/

Selected papers’ authors should have the opportunity to publish

extended versions of their papers in a special issue of ComSIS:

Computer Science and Information Systems.

Papers should be written using the OASIcs LaTeX template, using the

English language, and should not exceed 16 pages. Please refer to our

website (http://slate.no-ip.org/submissions) for details about the

document preparation.
