Meeting Description: Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTA 2014)

This year the Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTA) will be held at the RMIT University, Melbourne, Victoria, on Wednesday 26 - Friday 28 November. This event will be the twelfth annual installment of the ALTA.

The goals of the ALTA workshop are:

- To bring together the growing Language Technology (LT) community in the Australasian region and encourage interactions
- To encourage interactions and collaboration within this community and with the wider international LT community
- To foster interaction between academic and industrial researchers, to encourage dissemination of research results
- To provide a forum for students and young researchers to present their research
- To facilitate the discussion of new and ongoing research and projects
- To provide an opportunity for the broader artificial intelligence community to become aware of local LT research
- To increase visibility of LT research in Australasia and overseas

Invited Speakers:

We would like to offer a few full- or half-day tutorials on Wednesday, 26 November and are currently requesting proposals for tutorial topics. If you would like to present a tutorial, please contact the organisers as soon as possible ( For more information, please see
