Call for Speakers… on the Business Value of Language Technologies (Dec 4-5, Brussels)

LTaccelerateLogoDoes your organization seek to make sense of social, online, and enterprise data? If so, a new, European, conference is for you.

LT-Accelerate is designed to help businesses, researchers, and public administrations discover business value via language technologies. With your participation — as a speaker, panelist, workshop presenter, or attendee — LT-Accelerate will be a great conference. Please consider submitting a
proposal in response to our Call for Speakers, preferably by August 15, 2014.

LT-Accelerate takes place December 4-5, 2014 in Brussels. I am developing LT-Accelerate jointly with LT-Innovate, the forum for Europe’s language technology industry. You may be familiar with my Sentiment Analysis Symposium conference (which I will continue in the US) or know my work as an industry analyst, or perhaps you follow LT-Innovate. Together, with your participation, we will make LT-Accelerate an outstanding event where you will meet, learn from, and network with fellow business innovators, academic and industry thought leaders, solution providers, and consultants. LT-Accelerate is about opportunity, unique in Europe.

What sort of speakers are we seeking? (And who should attend, speaker or not?)

Whether you are a business visionary, experienced user, or technologist, please consider proposing a presentation or panel. Submit your proposal now.

Choose from among the suggested topics or surprise us. We invite speakers who will focus on customer experience, market research, media measurement, financial services, life sciences, security, or social intelligence — on applications such as interaction and workforce analytics, digital analytics, social listening and engagement, trading strategies, and survey analysis. Our program will extend to technologies for text and sentiment analysis, social network analysis, and big data. But don’t let this list limit you. We see opportunity in innovation!

Please do propose an LT-Accelerate presentation, workshop, or panel, and if you have questions, do get in touch with me (coordinates below) or LT-Innovate’s Philippe Wacker, at And follow us on Twitter at @LTaccelerate.

I hope to see you in Brussels in December!
