The International Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology will be held in Darmstadt, Germany, on September 25 - 27, 2013. The conference is aimed at an international audience. Conference languages are English and German. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the Springer LNCS series. See for details.

The main conference theme is "Language Processing and Knowledge in the Web". This has been an area of great and steadily increasing interest within the language processing and related communities over the past years. Both in terms of academic research and commercial applications, the Web stimulated and influenced the research directions yielding results with impact beyond the Web itself. Thus, it will be highly useful to highlight the most recent advances within this domain and consolidate the individual research outcomes in a major language processing conference.

Besides regular research papers, workshops, and tutorials, the conference will also host special tracks for system demonstrations, student research papers, and nectar track papers, i.e. a track giving top-researchers the opportunity to present the most significant results from the last two years to the GSCL community.

The conference is organized by the UKP Lab at the Technische Universität Darmstadt (UKP-TUDA) and at the Leibniz-Institute DIPF in Frankfurt (UKP-DIPF).
