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 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.

Comics in Culture/Culture in Comics
The aim of the conference is to present a wide array of perspectives of different forms of comics and their role in culture. Comics, as a unique combination of literature and visual arts, spanning from child entertainment, through popculture, to independent artistic expression, are a great source of interdisciplinary research. This is why we welcome entries on variety of topics exploring the relations between them and culture.
