SLATE is an international symposium dedicated to researchers and professionals interested in the study of languages. Since this is a very broad subject, the symposium is divided into three main tracks, each one focusing on a specific aspect of languages: from natural languages to compilers.
The HHL track is dedicated to the discussion of research projects and ideas involving natural language processing and their industrial application.
The HCL track is where researchers, developers and educators exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work on language design, processing, assessment and applications.
The CCL track main goal is to provide a broad space for discussion about the XML mark-up language: examples of usage and associated technologies.
