Welcome to the Eighth Swedish Language Technology Conference (SLTC), which will take place in Göteborg 18–20 November 2020, with workshops on Wednesday 18 November and the main conference Thursday–Friday 19–20 November.
- 1st Call for papers: Tuesday 17 March
- Workshop proposal submission deadline: Tuesday 2 June
- Workshop notification of acceptance: Tuesday 16 June
- Abstract submission deadline: Tuesday 25 August
- Notification of acceptance: Tuesday 6 October
- Workshops: Wednesday 18 November
- Main conference: Thursday–Friday 19–20 November
SLTC 2020 is organised by University of Gothenburg, and in particular:
- CLASP (the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability) at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science,
- Språkbanken Text (the Language Bank) at the Department of Swedish, and
- the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Papers are invited on all theoretical, practical and applied aspects of language technology, including natural language processing, computational linguistics, speech technology and neighbouring areas. Papers can describe completed or ongoing research, as well as practical applications of language technology, and may be combined with systemdemonstrations.
Papers will be presented at the conference as posters or oral presentations, according to the decision of the program committee.
The conference does not publish any proceedings, but accepted contributions will be made available on the conference web page as extended abstracts. Hence, it is possible to submit abstracts related to work that has been, or will be, published elsewhere, as long as this is compatible with the conditions of the respective publication channels.
In addition, we are looking into possibilities for a dedicated post-proceedings volume in some journal, or similar kind of publication venue. The idea is that the post-proceedings will solicit full-length versions of selected conference papers, and will have a separate review process which will be initiated shortly after SLTC 2020 so that feedback from the conference can be incorporated into the post-proceeding versions.
Papers are submitted as extended abstracts using style files that will be made available at the conference webpage, and should include author names and affiliations. The abstract should be up to 4 pages, excluding references. Information on the paper submission procedure will be made available at the conference webpage.
SLTC conferences are biennial, alternating with the likewise biennial Nodalida conferences.
