we invite submissions to the 8th Biennial Intergallatic Symposium "Human Language Technologies - the Baltic Perspective" (hlt2018.ut.ee), which will take place in Tartu, Estonia on September 27-29.
Your research is Baltic enough, if it involves - languages spoken in the Baltics - languages spoken around the Baltics - any similar languages: think rich morphology, no strict word order, more exceptions/exceptions to these exceptions than rules
Topics of interest: NLP and speech technology. Send us your deep multilingual character-level zero-shot end-to-end deep no-data quantum black magic (deep?) neural networks, and your superior linguistic processing pipelines, and let's see who wins, or if they can be friends.
Ok, more specifically (including, though not limited to):
*Applications:* Machine translation and multilinguality Human-computer interaction, dialog systems, question answering Multimodal language processing, image captioning Speech recognition, synthesis, translation Information extraction, natural language understanding
*Core methodology:* Machine learning and deep learning for language processing Reinforcement/unsupervised/semi-supervised/transfer learning in NLP Distributed representation learning and applications Linguistic knowledge incorporation in machine learning approaches Tagging, disambiguation, shallow/deep parsing Ontologies, lexicons, terminology, knowledge representation (Semi)automatic evaluation metrics and error analysis
*Language resources:* Text/speech/multimodal data, design, evaluation Resources and methods for lesser-resourced languages
*Important dates:* May 14: deadline for extended abstracts (1000-1500 words) June 11: notification of acceptance July 20: camera-ready full papers September 27: workshop September 28-29: main conference
