NLDB 2023

The 28th International Conference on Natural Language & Information Systems
21-23 June 2023, University of Derby, United Kingdom.

About NLDB

The 28th International Conference on Natural Language & Information
Systems will be held at the University of Derby, United Kingdom and
will be a face to face event.
Since 1995, the NLDB conference brings together researchers, industry
practitioners, and potential users interested in various application
of Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems field. The
term "Information Systems" has to be considered in the broader sense
of Information and Communication Systems, including Big Data, Linked
Data and Social Networks.

The field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) has itself recently
experienced several exciting developments. In research, these
developments have been reflected in the emergence of neural language
models (Deep Learning, Word Embeddings, Transformers) and the
importance of aspects such as transparency, bias and fairness, a
(renewed) interest in various linguistic phenomena, such as in
discourse and argumentation mining, and in new problems such as the
detection of disinformation and hate speech in social media, as well
of mental health disorders that increased during the recent pandemic.
Regarding applications, NLP systems have evolved to the point that
they now offer real-life, tangible benefits to enterprises. Many of
these NLP systems are now considered a de-facto offering in business
intelligence suites, such as algorithms for recommender systems and
opinion mining/sentiment analysis.
It is against this backdrop of recent innovations in NLP and its
applications in information systems that the 28th edition of the NLDB
conference takes place. We welcome research and industrial
contributions, describing novel, previously unpublished works on NLP
and its applications across a plethora of topics as described in the
Call for Papers.

Call for Papers

NLDB 2023 invites authors to submit papers for oral or poster
presentations on unpublished research that addresses theoretical
aspects, algorithms, applications, architectures for applied and
integrated NLP, resources for applied NLP, and other aspects of NLP,
as well as survey and discussion papers. This year's edition of NLDB
also introduces an Industry Track, to foster fruitful interaction
between the industry and the research community.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Social Media and Web Analytics: Opinion mining/sentiment analysis,
irony/sarcasm detection; detection of fake reviews and deceptive
language; detection of harmful information: fake news and hate speech;
sexism and misogyny; detection of mental health disorders;
identification of stereotypes and social biases; robust NLP methods
for sparse, ill-formed texts; recommendation systems.

Deep Learning and eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI): Deep
learning architectures, word embeddings, transparency,
interpretability, fairness, debiasing, ethics.

• Argumentation Mining and Applications: Automatic detection of
argumentation components and relationships; creation of resource (e.g.
annotated corpora, treebanks and parsers); Integration of NLP
techniques with formal, abstract argumentation structures;
Argumentation Mining from legal texts and scientific articles.
• Question Answering (QA): Natural language interfaces to databases,
QA using web data, multi-lingual QA, non-factoid QA(how/why/opinion
questions, lists), geographical QA, QA corpora and training sets, QA
over linked data (QALD).
• Corpus Analysis: multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-modal
corpora; machine translation, text analysis, text classification and
clustering; language identification; plagiarism detection; information
extraction: named entity, extraction of events, terms and semantic
• Semantic Web, Open Linked Data, and Ontologies: Ontology learning
and alignment, ontology population, ontology evaluation, querying
ontologies and linked data, semantic tagging and classification,
ontology-driven NLP, ontology-driven systems integration.
• Natural Language in Conceptual Modelling: Analysis of natural
language descriptions, NLP in requirement engineering, terminological
ontologies, consistency checking, metadata creation and harvesting.
• Natural Language and Ubiquitous Computing: Pervasive computing,
embedded, robotic and mobile applications; conversational agents; NLP
techniques for Internet of Things (IoT); NLP techniques for ambient
• Big Data and Business Intelligence: Identity detection, semantic
data cleaning, summarisation, reporting, and data to text.

Important Dates:

Full paper submission: 14 March, 2023
Paper notification: 10 April, 2023
Camera-ready deadline: 24 April, 2023
Conference: 21-23 June 2023

Submission Guidelines

Authors should follow the LNCS format and submit their manuscripts in pdf via Easychair

Submissions can be full papers (12 pages maximum including
references), short papers (8 pages including references) or papers for
a poster presentation or system demonstration (6 pages including
references). The programme committee may decide to accept some full
papers as short papers or poster papers.
The reviewing process of NLDB 2023 is double-blind, i.e., submissions
to the main conference and to the industry track must not contain
author names or other identifying information, such as funding
sources, acknowledgments and must use the third person to refer to
work the authors have previously undertaken. System demonstration
papers may not be anonymous.
