SLATE: Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies

The School of Media Arts and Design hosts SLATE, an international symposium about languages organized in three different tracks.

The 2nd edition of SLATE: Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies will take place at the School of Media Arts and Design (ESMAD), between July 1 and 2, 2021.

We often use languages. Earlier, 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 they still share many similarities. In SLATE, we are interested in discussing these languages, organized in three main tracks:

- HHL Track: Processing Human-Human Languages, dedicated to the presentation and discussion of Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools and applications.

- HCL Track: Processing Human-Computer Languages, where researchers, developers, and educators exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work on the design, processing, assessment, and applications of programming languages.

- CCL Track: Processing Computer-Computer Languages, broad space for discussing (mark-up) languages for communication between computers, including those used for visualization and presentation of information to the end-user.
