Call For Papers

The Special Session on LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGIES will be held at the 22nd
International Conference on Information and Software Technologies (ICIST)
scheduled on the 13-15 October, 2016 in Druskininkai, Lithuania.

SCOPE
Since human language is the most natural way of communication,
linguistically competent software would greatly facilitate humans’
interaction with computers and help in our needs. The field of Language
Technologies (LT) gained a lot of interest and made enormous progress
during the last decades. LT is an interdisciplinary field dealing with the
statistical or rule-based modeling and involving practitioners of
artificial intelligence, computer science, engineering, information
retrieval, linguistics, phonetics, or psychology. The special session on LT
provides a focus for this work, and encourages interdisciplinary approach
to speech and language research and technology bringing together experts
from both academia and industry. The paper submissions reporting original
results and system development experience as well as real-world
applications are kindly welcomed to this session.

TOPICS
Authors are invited to submit full papers describing original research work
associated with Language Technologies including, but not limited to:

   - Natural Language Processing (tagging systems, stemming, parsing and
   syntactical analysis, corpus-based language engineering)
   - Natural Language Understanding (text analysis, ontology, formal
   semantics)
   - Language-based Knowledge Engineering (text and data mining, knowledge
   acquisition, knowledge representation and reasoning)
   - Cognitive models and AI techniques (graph based models, semantic nets,
   neural networks, and cognitive maps)
   - Language Generation (dialogue-based systems, creative and writing
   systems, language synthesis, translation)
   - Multi-modalities Computational Linguistics (speech recognition,
   speech-text conversions, speech analysis and textual tagging)
   - Applications and Systems (search and information retrieval, web
   applications, forensics, cognitive systems, question-answer systems,
   translation systems, documents classifiers)


SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Authors are invited to submit their papers in English through the
conference submission system. Submissions must be original and should not
have been published previously. All papers will be peer-reviewed the
ICIST-2016 Program Committee and judged with respect to their quality,
originality, and relevance. For further details, please consult the
conference web pages.

PUBLICATION
All accepted papers will appear in the ICIST Conference Proceedings Volume
(published by Springer as a part of CCIS series) and submitted for indexing
to Thomson Reuters ISI. Selected authors of best papers will be also
invited to submit extended versions of their papers to Information
Technology and Control journal (ISSN 1392-124X; Thomson Reuters ISI Impact
factor 0,623 (2014)).

IMPORTANT DATES
01 05 2016 – Submission of papers
05 06 2016 – Notification of papers acceptance
23 06 2016 – Final manuscripts due
