1st International Workshop on Language Technologies and Applications (LTA'16)

Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016

Development of new technologies and various intelligent systems creates new possibilities for intelligent data processing. Natural Language Processing (NLP) addresses problems of automated understanding, processing and generation of natural human languages. LTA workshop provides a venue for presenting innovative research in NLP related, but not restricted, to: computational and mathematical modeling, analysis and processing of any forms (spoken, handwritten or text) of human language and various applications in decision support systems. The LTA workshop will provide an opportunity for researchers and professionals working in the domain of NLP to discuss present and future challenges as well as potential collaboration for future progress in the field of NLP.
