Motivation

The Sixth Baltic Conference Human Language Technologies (HLT) - the Baltic Perspective is a great opportunity for researchers in the Baltic and surrounding regions to meet and discuss problems, issues, challenges and achievements, as well as to foster cooperation in the area of natural language processing and human language technologies. 

The event is also important for gathering and consolidating ideas for the following reasons: 

  • a great urge for Baltic countries to establish and join international research infrastructures;
  • possible participation in the EU Research and Innovation programme "Horizons 2020" and in the new period of the EU structural funds (2014-2020).

History

The conference is the successor of the five previous Baltic HLT conferences held in Riga (2004), Tallinn (2005), Kaunas (2007), Riga (2010) and Tartu (2012).
