We often use languages. First, to communicate between ourselves. Later, to communicate with computers. And more recently, with the advent of networks, we found a way to make computers communicate between themselves. All these different forms of communication use languages, different languages, but that still share many similarities. In SLATE we are interested in discussing these languages.

SLATE 2021 Chairs:
Ricardo Queirós (ESMAD/P.PORTO & uniMAD & CRACS/INESC TEC)
Mário Pinto (ESMAD/P.PORTO & uniMAD)
Alberto Simões (2Ai-School of Technology, IPCA, Barcelos, Portugal)
Being languages such a broad subject, SLATE is organized in three main tracks:

  1. HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages

    HHL is a forum dedicated to the discussion of research projects and ideas involving natural language processing and their industrial application.

  2. HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages

    HCL is a forum where researchers, developers, educators exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work on language design, processing, assessment and applications.

  3. CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages

    CCL main goal is to provide a broad space for discusstion about the XML markup language: examples of usage and associated technologies.

  • Full papers - 8 to 14 pages, presented in 20+5 minutes, complete work, including a validation or discussion;
  • Short papers - 6 to 8 pages, presented in 10+5 minutes, ongoing work, well anchored in the literature, but not yet fully validated;
  • Lightning talks - no publication, presented in 3 to 5 minutes, research ideas or work that has just started.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and digital support. They will also integrate the OASIcs series: https://www.dagstuhl.de/publikationen/oasics/. In addition, the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to appropriate journals (more information will be posted later on the conference website).

Papers should be written using the OASIcs LaTeX template, using the English language. Please refer to our website for details about the document preparation.
