6th Swedish Language Technology Conference (SLTC)

Wednesday the 16th of November, to Friday the 19th of November, 2016 Umeň University, Umeň, Sweden



The program committee for SLTC 2016 invites proposals for workshops on language technology and related areas. SLTC 2016 will be held 16-18 November, 2016, on the campus of Umeň University in Sweden.

The conference addresses all aspects of language technology (LT) and is known as a friendly and inclusive event. It gathers most of the researchers in Sweden, and increasingly also from Scandinavia and the rest of the world. Recent editions of the conference have received 105-135 participants each, and we expect comparable figures for SLTC 2016. A more complete presentation is found at the conference’s webpage.

We invite proposals for workshops, to be held on Wednesday, 16 November, immediately preceding the main conference. Workshops can be either scheduled for a full day (morning and afternoon) or for half a day. Workshop proposals can be submitted in free-text form, any time until Monday, 23 May, by email to sltc2016 at cs.umu.se

Workshop proposals must include information on the following aspects: - proposed workshop title - half or full day workshop - topic and goals of the workshop - target group and estimated attendance - workshop organizer(s) and contact(s) - mode of organization and programme design - a brief summary of the workshop’s history (in case of a recurring event)
