International Workshop on Language Translation in Intelligent Agents (LTIA-2014)

Systems are called "intelligent" if they have the capability to take decisions based on experience. But gaining experience involves both knowledge acquisition and learning. Learning is normally done by human intervention, where the instructions are fed manually to the intelligent program. The instructions undergo a phase called "operationalization" where they undergo transformation from natural language to a form understandable by the program. It involves both translation and substitution of operation structures. This is very critical because the efficiency of learning depends on how well the conversion is done.

The International Workshop on Language Translation in Intelligent Agents (LTIA-2014) aims to bring together researchers from both industry and academia to participate and present their work related to various aspects of natural language processing, learning and operationalization. LTIA-2014 is affiliated with Third International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2014).

The Workshop organizers invite original and unpublished work from individuals active in the broad theme of the symposium. Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at:

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

  • Adaptability of GCC Machine Descriptions in Operationalization
  • Analogy of Code Generation and Operationalization
  • Choice of Programming Languages for Learning Agents
  • Code Optimization in Compilers
  • Conversion of Natural Language Instructions into High Level Programs
  • Deductive Agents
  • Efficient Language Front-Ends
  • Impact of Operationalization in Knowledge Base Structure
  • Incorporating Machine Translation Techniques in Learning
  • Intelligent Agents
  • Language Syntax and Semantics
  • Language Translators
  • Learning by Advice
  • Lexical and Syntax Analysis for Natural Languages
  • Natural Language Understanding
  • Operation Unfolding and Substitution
  • Propositional and Predicate Logic in Language Translation
  • Retargetable Compilers
  • Translation of Existing Knowledge Bases into Operations
  • Word Order Determination in Operationalization


All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the Conference before the indicated deadline. The accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Independently of the presentation type, all papers are included in the proceedings.
