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 language is English


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

Światy poza światem. Fantastyka wysokoartystyczna w literaturze i kulturze

Organizatorzy niniejszej konferencji chcieliby zachęcić do pochylenia się nad następującymi problemami: • Polskimi i zachodnimi typologiami gatunków fantastycznych (czyli zarówno fantasy, science fiction, jak i fantastyka grozy, w tym horror, i podobnie dalej); • Kanoniczności fantastyki i przewartościowania opozycji low i high fantasy; • Proliferacji gatunków i subgatunków fantastycznych; • Dominacji kategorii estetycznych w genologii fantastycznej (urban fantasy, dark fan-tasy, steampunk, post-apo, cyberpunk, dieselpunk etc.);  • Relacji tekstów reprezentujących nurty Nowej Fali SF i New Weird do korpusu klasycznej fantastyki; • Korzeni gatunkowych fantastyki (francuska marveilleux, anglosaski realizm fantastyczny czy niemiecki romantyzm); • Inkluzywności fantastyki grozy w kanonie fantastycznym; • Wzmożonej aktywności światotwórczej fantastów (tworzenie encyklopedii, kompendiów, podręczników, atlasów, grafik koncepcyjnych itp.); • Przekładalności konwencji fantastycznych na media pozaliterackie: filmy, gry wideo, komiksy, gry fabularne (w tym LARPy) i transmedia.
