Apologies for cross-posting

  Last CfP — Deadline extension

Call for Papers @ Third Biennial Conference on Language, Data and 
Knowledge (LDK2021)
Conference dates: 01 September 2021 (Workshop/Tutorials day), 02-03 
September 2021 (Main Conference)
Location: Zaragoza, Spain
Website: http://2021.ldk-conf.org/
Submission Deadline extended to: 21 March 2021
Submission page: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=ldk2021#

In order to allow more people to attend the Conference physically, and 
due to the current state in the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, we decided 
to postpone LDK 2021 to early September. The conference will allow 
remote presentations by participants who cannot attend the conference in 
person owing to COVID-19 travelling restrictions, but we do think that 
physical encounter and gossip leads to better research. Note that we 
took the opportunity to further extend the submission deadline.

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

      Paper submission

We welcome submission of relevance to the topics listed below. 
Submissions can be in the form of:

    Long research papers: 10-15 pages;
    Short research or position papers: 6-8 pages;
    Short scientific abstract submissions: be 4-6 pages.
    Short abstracts on new challenges and research ideas (“Crazy New
    Ideas”): 1-4 pages

This year, we would like to propose a “Crazy New Ideas” session that 
will be the occasion to present challenging research ideas that have not 
yet been fully explored, or you would like to see in ten years from now. 
Such ideas should be briefly presented in the form of a short abstract 
of one to four pages to initiate the discussions, which will also be 
included in the conference proceedings if permitted by the authors. This 
is your chance to be creative without censorship. Reviews for these 
abstract will focus on the potential of ideas to spark interesting 

All submissions lengths are given excluding a maximum of 5 pages for 
references and appendices. Accepted submissions will be published by 
OASIcs in an open-access conference proceedings volume free of charge 
for authors.

The OASIcs layout templates to be used for submissions are available for 
download from :
As the reviewing process is single-blind, submissions should not be 

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair at the following address:

For each submitted paper, one author is expected to attend the 
conference and present their work. There will be no registration fee 
administered for LDK 2021.

      Invited speakers

We are very happy to announce Mikel Forcada, Universitat d'Alacant, 
Mathieu Lafourcade, University of Montpellier, and Sara Tonelli, 
Fondazione Bruno Kessler, as keynote speakers for LDK 2021.

      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 in the published volumes.
Authors of accepted short papers and scientific abstract are welcome to 
present their work as a demo in addition to the regular presentation.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register to present the 
paper at the conference.
