With the increasing number of platforms, grids and infrastructures in the wider area of Language Technologies (LT), NLP, NLU, speech, interaction and language-centric AI, there is also a growing need for sharing experiences, approaches and best practices to learn and benefit from the work of others and also, practically, to start a collaboration towards platform interoperability. The 1st International Workshop for Language Technology Platforms (IWLTP 2020) addresses all smaller and larger

Its objective is to exchange and discuss observations, experiences, solutions, best practices as well as current and future challenges. The workshop also addresses the issue of fragmentation in the Language Technology landscape. Instead of "platform islands" that simply exist side by side, possibly even competing with each other, initiatives should discuss how their platforms can be made interoperable and how they can interact with one another to create synergies towards a productive LT platform ecosystem. A total of 30 papers were submitted to IWLTP 2020, 17 of which were accepted (acceptance rate: 56.7%). This proceedings volume contains all 17 accepted papers.
