The 9th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2019), May 17-19, 2019, Poznań, Poland
CALL FOR PAPERS AND WORKSHOPS
CONFERENCE CHAIRS: Zygmunt Vetulani (Poland) and Patrick Paroubek (France)
Yes, we started 24 years ago! Our tradition goes back to the Language and Technology Awareness Days, a meeting organized in 1995 with the assistance of the European Commission (DG XIII). Among the key speakers were Antonio Zampolli (Italy), Dafydd Gibbon (Germany), Dan Tufiş (Romania), OrestKossak (Ukraina). Today, we refer to this event as the first LTC. Since2005 LTC is organized every two years as the “Language & TechnologyConference: Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Scienceand Linguistics”. Fostering language technologies and resources remains an important challenge in the dynamically changing, information-saturatedworld and we invite all concerned people to join us in Poznań at the LTC2019 in order to face this challenge together.

The conference accepts papers in English only. Papers (5 formatted pages in the conference format) are due by March 20, 2019 (midnight, any time zone) and should not disclose the authorship in any manner. In order to facilitate submission we have decided to reduce the formatting requirements as much as possible at this stage. Please, have a look at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl
Acceptance will be based on the reviewers assessments (double-blinded submission model). The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (hard copy, with ISBN number) and on CD-ROM. Proceedings will be published by Wydawnictwo Nauka i Innowacje sp. z o.o. indexed by the Polish Ministry of Higher Education. Publication requires full electronic registration and payment of the conference fee (full registration) by at least one of the co-authors in due time (dates will be presented at the conference site). One registration fee entitles publication of one paper.
We intend to publish a post-conference volume with extended versions of selected papers in Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (Springer Verlag). Papers will be selected on the basis of reviewers reports among the best evaluated papers of general interest with new, innovative results. Preference will be given to papers providing substantial content extension with respect to the paper presented at the conference.
Only electronic registration will be possible. Details will be published at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl.
Please notice that remaining important information on the general conference and workshops is or will be provided at the conference site www.ltc.amu.edu.pl
THE 1ST BIAŁYSTOK CONFERENCE ON THEORETICAL AND APPLIED LINGUISTICS
In recent years linguistic conferences organized by the Białystok circle of neophilologists have established a strong tradition in terms of providing a forum for the exchange of views on the nature of language. It all started almost fifteen years ago, in 2002. The main aim of the conferences was to provide a meeting ground for a wide range of scholars: linguists, literary scholars, foreign language teaching methodologists, to mention but a few groups of researchers participating in the events. The conferences explored the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. They were often organized in co-operation with French language scholars.

The third Context, Cognition and Communication Conference will be hosted by the Institute of Philosophy, University of Warsaw. The main theme of the conference is "Varieties of Meaning and Content".
