We are pleased to announce that the 11th biennial RANLP conference will take

conference programme of competitively peer-reviewed papers reporting on the
recent advances of a wide range of NLP topics, the RANLP conference features
6 keynote speeches. Poster and demo sessions will be held at the conference
exhibition area. The conference will be preceded by two days of tutorials
(2-3 September 2017). Post-conference workshops will be held on 7-8 September
2017. A Student Research Workshop will run in parallel to the main
conference. The Student Research Workshop (now in its fifth edition) is a
vibrant discussion forum for young researchers.

As from RANLP 2009, the papers accepted at RANLP and the associated workshops
are included in the ACL Anthology. The RANLP proceedings are indexed by
SCOPUS and DBLP.

We invite papers reporting recent advances in all aspects of Natural Language
Processing (NLP). We encourage contributions from a broad range of areas
including, but not limited to, the following topics: phonetics, phonology,
and morphology; syntax, semantics, discourse, pragmatics, dialogue, and
lexicon; mathematical, statistical, machine learning and deep learning models
and complexity; language resources and corpora; electronic dictionaries,
terminologies and ontologies; POS tagging; parsing; semantic role labelling;
word-sense disambiguation; multiword expressions; textual entailment;
anaphora resolution; language generation; speech recognition; text-to-speech
synthesis; multilingual NLP; machine translation, translation memory systems
