Call For Papers

Future and Emerging Trends in Language Technologies, Machine Learning and Big Data
First call for papers

We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to FETLT16. This workshop has been conceived as a meeting point where experts and professionals in the fields of language technologies and other converging areas can discuss the state of the art, as well as the emerging trends in the sector.

Language technologies have become a prominent area of research, development and innovation. New trends and proposals in this field will have an impressive social impact in the near future. Therefore, the workshop will welcome contributions describing results and ongoing projects exploring new tendencies, techniques and approaches. Among them, we would like to place a special emphasis on the convergence between Language Technologies, Machine Learning and Big Data.

The Workshop "Future and Emerging Trends in Language Technology" has been conceived as a meeting point where experts and professionals in the fields of language technologies and other converging areas will discuss the state of the art, as well as the emerging trends in the sector. The main objective of this workshop is to serve as a bridge between academia and industry, as well as representatives of agencies that coordinate research and innovation policies. The workshop thus guarantees a multidisciplinary common spirit in which experts will be able to present and analyze the trends that will shape the immediate future as well as the mid-term vision in this sector.

Following this approach, the organizing committee of the workshop welcomes the reception of papers under the following categories:
New Applications of Key Consolidated Approaches

Authors can submit their paper on new strategies, models and consolidated techniques at the academic or industrial levels that are being used right now to tackle any issue in the field of Language Technology, as well as in the interconnection of this field with Machine Learning and Big Data. Papers under this category must provide a brief explanation of the foundations of the approaches proposed and the areas and applications for which those techniques are useful in the present.
Emerging Research

Authors can submit their paper under this category when they have preliminary results obtained from ongoing research projects. Papers must describe the motivation of the approach, as well as the scientific, methodological and/or technological approach chosen. Papers must also analyze the advantages and benefits derived from such approaches for a broad application in the field of Language Technology, and the rest of convergent areas related to it.
Challenge Papers

Authors can submit a paper on different fields and convergent areas related to Language Technology describing the occurrence of new and constant challenges for both the academic and the industrial areas. These papers must indicate which areas and specific problems are currently posing a concrete technological and/or methodological challenge. Papers under this category must include the reasons why present-day techniques should be considered insuficient to tackle the issues at hand by the presentation of preliminary research/development results as a justification. Additionally, articles in this section should propose research strategies that can be considered promising to provide sound solutions to the problems defined, with a solid and clear scientific and technical argumentation.
List of Topics
