We invite submissions to the second biennial conference on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK 2019), which will be held in Leipzig, Germany in May 2019. 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.

------------------ Presentation format
Accepted submissions will be selected for oral or poster presentation based on recommendations from the reviewers (with no difference in quality between types of presentation). Authors of accepted short papers and scientific abstract are welcome to present their work as a demo in addition to the regular presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to present the paper at the conference.
