SLATE 2023 - Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies

26th to 28th June, 2023
ESMAD, Politécnico do Porto, Portugal

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 2023 General Chair:
Alberto Simões (2Ai Laboratory, School of Technology, IPCA, Portugal)
Being languages such a broad subject, SLATE is organized in three main tracks:

  1. HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages
    Chair: Alberto Simões (2Ai Laboratory, School of Technology, IPCA, Portugal)

    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
    Chair: Mario Béron (Universidad Nacional de San Luis, San Luis, Argentina)

    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
    Chair: Filipe Portela (Algoritmi, University of Minho)

    CCL main goal is to provide a broad space for discussion 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;

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on digital support. They will also integrate the OASIcs series.

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