Dear Colleagues,

The 7th Language and Technology Conference (LTC 2015), a meeting organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz University Foundation, will take place on November 27-29, 2015. Following the tradition of the past events, it is supported by ELRA, FlaReNet, and META-NET.

Yes, we started 20 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), Orest Kossak (Ukraina). Now we refer to this event as the first LTC. Ten years later, we decided to meet again, and since then the conference is being organized every two years as the “Language & Technology Conference: Human Language Technologies as a Challenge for Computer Science and Linguistics”.

Since the very beginning (1995) the meetings of the LTC series continue to address Human Language Technologies (HLT) as a challenge for computer science, linguistics and related fields. Fostering language technologies and resources remains an important mission in our dynamically changing information and knowledge society. We aim at contributing to this mission and invite you to join us at LTC'2015 in November 2015. As usual in Poznań.

Theme and Motivation

This Workshop is targeting all stakeholders somehow involved in Language Technology for less-resourced languages, either as users, developers, researchers, language activists, policy makers. As such, the Workshop broadly addresses current use and usability of Language Technologies for less-resourced languages. This year, we take the opportunity of celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Language and Technology Conference to analyze the influence of Language Technologies on Less-Resourced Languages over two decades. We will particularly welcome contributions addressing the following issues:

1) LRLs in the digital age - how well are regional/minority/less-resourced languages equipped for the digital age? What is the experience of speakers, what are their opportunities to act in the digital sphere by means of these languages? Do speakers of regional/minority/less-resourced languages experience any kind of "unequal digital opportunity"? What is the impact of LRTs on the use and usability of LRL on digital media and devices?

2) LRTs for LRL - development of LRTs for LRLs is often linked to purposes other than availability of applications for retrieving information or for enabling communication (e.g. language learning, identity-building or language reclamation): how often are LRLs targeted by applications for educational, entertainment, or revitalization purposes?

3) LRL: charting the field - what do we know about currently available LRTs for LRL? How to draw a comprehensive and accurate picture? Who are the actors to be involved? What is the experience of researchers and developers?

4) LRL: rethinking the BLaRK - the BLaRK still proves a useful tool for planning and implementing LT for LRL. How can it be remodeled/rethought in the light of current technological development? How can it be channeled into a coherent development roadmap?

Theme and Motivations:

Utilizing social wisdom begins with observation of human behaviour, analysis of artifacts, building paradigms on statistical models and converting them into algorithms. Social trend observed in XXI century networking and business activity has several roots. A base for rapid growth is accessible technology. But the force that drives people to active contribution is an everyday challenge to become recognizable and rich. Crowd creativity is a process of merging efforts and distributed resources in order to produce new quality and new products. Utilizing social energy and productivity gives beginning to new business paradigms, which converted into algorithms may be applied in various domains.

Among a variety of ways how people share their wisdom text resources – words – play an important role. Books, articles, reports, subtitles, comments, tables of data, e-mails, passwords and other textual feeds are easy to produce, easy to transfer, relatively easy to translate and very attractive to process and analyze. 3rd SAIBS is a place where we want to discuss methods of knowledge discovery in text, its visualization and commercialization.

An important contribution of social power is software developed and hosted by volunteers and distributed on word-of-mouth recommendation. During the workshop session we want to face social contribution to business processes taking into account possible benefits and risk factors. How far can business relay on social input? What are the limits or what are the areas where introducing crowdsourced parts may increase overall risk value to unacceptable level? What are social benefits gained by mining and aggregating knowledge derived from analysis social artifacts presented in text or other forms in global computer network.

Algorithmic trading (algo trading) practiced on stock markets and Forex trading platforms arises as a new challenge for algorithm designers. This field of knowledge and practice grown from human-eye analysis of text tables collecting series of prices is a good example how far computer algorithms can outperform humans in precision, speed and accuracy. During 3rd SAIBS we would like to face the phenomenon of social trading, compare models of passive income from trading systems based on algorithmic and social recommendation and discuss algo-trading boundaries. Should algorithmic trading become a part of computing science curricula? Finally we are also interested in research works which analyze crowd behaviour collected in text tables or visualized in form of charts.

Aims, scope and Topics:
During 3rd SAIBS Workshop we want to focus on computational and optimization issues that can be supported by crowd input or social intelligence. A separate issue worth to analyze is visualization of data and paradigms collected in databases and large text files. We will try to answer the question how far and on which fields business may benefit from utilizing social contribution. And finally, we will discuss problems how computer systems may understand social behaviour (sometimes named: market) and support humans in making decisions, i.e. in automatic trading.

Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

• Translation issues and multi-language data feeds
• Recommender systems based on textual content and comments analysis
• Object comparison, building ranks
• Mining text artifacts to feed recommender systems
• Visualization of text and digital data
• Social and language issues in software specification, design and production
• New face of interactive social games based on text instructions and wordplay
• Software engineering issues
• Cultural and social issues in global software development
• Social sharing and exchange systems
• Crowdsourcing and crowdfounding
• Automatic trading systems
• Optimization algorithms in trade support
• Experimental discovery of market behaviour
• Business models based on mobile applications
• Knowledge commercialization
• Business process improvement
