1st International Workshop on Language Technology in Pervasive Computing (LTPC)


The main objective of the workshop is to consider the intersection of two research domains which have been separated the past years: Natural language Processing (NLP) and pervasive computing. In pervasive and ubiquitous computing scenarios, spoken language is in many cases the ideal modality for human beings to interact with a "disappearing" computer, i.e. to directly formulate their intentions and to receive feedback from the system. However, despite recent advances in speech technology, many developers still have objections to employ NLP due to concerns of low recognition rates and issues of disambiguation etc. These limitations of NLP components are not surprising, considering that even human beings can only make sense of spoken language by contextual knowledge. Sensing context however is one of the key topics of the Pervasive Computing conference series, particularly location sensing and activity recognition. We believe that the pervasive computing community can make an important contribution to the field of NLP.

The location of users within the environment and the surrounding objects are of major importance for dialogue between the user and a system. It is more likely that the user refers to objects that are nearby and visible, so the speech system should consider this. Gesture recognition is another pervasive technology that can improve speech-enabled systems through multimodality, with manifold applications. The quality of user interfaces may be further increased by personalization through speaker recognition. Finally, user interfaces of pervasive computing systems must be translated and localized to different languages and cultures in order to be successful on global markets.
