We invite submissions to the fourth biennial conference on Language, Data
and Knowledge (LDK 2023) to be held in Vienna, Austria in September 2023.
This conference aims to bring together researchers from across different
disciplines concerned with the acquisition, treatment, curation and use of
language data in the context of data science and knowledge-based
applications. This edition builds upon the success of the inaugural event
held in Galway, Ireland in 2017, the second LDK in Leipzig, Germany in
2019, and the third LDK in Zaragoza, Spain in 2021.

Invited speakers

We are happy to announce Diana Maynard (University of Sheffield), Ruben
Verborgh (Ghent University), and Ruth Wodak (Lancaster
University/University of Vienna), as keynote speakers for LDK 2023.

Paper submissionWe welcome submissions of relevance to the topics listed
below. Submissions can be in the form of:


   Long papers: 9–12 pages;

   Short papers: 4–6 pages.

All submission lengths are given including references. Accepted submissions
will be published by ACL in an open-access conference proceedings volume,
free of charge for authors. The ACL templates
<https://github.com/acl-org/acl-style-files> should therefore be used for
all conference submissions.

As the reviewing process is single-blind, submissions should not be

Papers should be submitted via OpenReview at the following address:


All articles must represent original work: when submitted, the submission
must not have been previously published*, and the material in it must not
have been/be submitted for review at another journal or conference while
under review at LDK 2023.

*This excludes papers on preprint archives, such as arXiv, which we do not
consider to have been previously published.

The conference will be hybrid (face-to-face and remote). Note that at least
one author of each accepted paper must register to present the paper at the
conference (either remotely or on-site). There will be no registration fee
administered for participating in LDK 2023.

Presentation format

Accepted submissions will be selected for oral or poster presentation based
on recommendations from the reviewers. This decision will not reflect any
difference in the quality of the papers, and there will be no distinction
between oral and poster presentations in the published proceedings. Authors
of accepted short papers or posters are welcome to present their work as a
demo in addition to the regular presentation.
