Call For Papers

First Call for Papers


Augusta SPA hotel, Hissar, Bulgaria (change of location)

Tutorials: September 10-11, 2011 (Saturday-Sunday)
Main Conference: September 12-14, 2011 (Monday-Wednesday)
Workshops: September 15-16, 2011 (Thursday-Friday)

RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the most
established and competitive NLP conferences. The event is held biennially
and grew out of the International summer schools "Contemporary topics in
Computational Linguistics", which were organised for many years as training
events. Selected papers from most RANLP conferences are traditionally
published in a volume as part of John Benjamins' series "Current Trends of
Linguistic Research". The papers accepted at RANLP-09 and the associated
workshops are included in the ACL Anthology.

We are pleased to announce the 8th RANLP conference to be held in September
2011. The conference will take the form of addresses from invited keynote
speakers plus presentations of peer-reviewed individual papers. There will
also be an exhibition area for poster and demo sessions. The conference will
be preceded by two days of tutorials (10-11 September 2011). Post-conference
workshops will be held on 15-16 September 2011.

We invite papers reporting on recent advances in all aspects of Natural
Language Processing (NLP). We encourage the representation of a broad range
of areas including but not limited to the following: pragmatics, discourse,
semantics, syntax, and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology, and morphology;
mathematical models and complexity; text understanding and generation;
multilingual NLP; machine translation, machine-aided translation,
translation memory systems, translation aids and tools; corpus-based
language processing; POS tagging; parsing; electronic dictionaries;
knowledge acquisition; terminology; word-sense disambiguation; anaphora
resolution; information retrieval; information extraction; text
summarisation; term recognition; text categorisation; question answering;
textual entailment; visualisation; dialogue systems; speech processing;
computer-aided language learning; language resources; evaluation; and
theoretical and application-oriented papers related to NLP.

This call for papers announces a new location of the conference: RANLP-2011
will be held in AUGUSTA SPA hotel (,
Hissar. Hissar or Hisarya (,_Bulgaria)
is a famous resort since ancient times; it boasts 22 mineral springs with
water temperatures between 37-52 degree Celsius. Archaeological research has
revealed that a town existed near the springs 5000 years BC. Many years
later Thracians, and after them Romans, settled around the warm springs. The
Roman emperor Diocletian visited the town in 293 and built a fortified wall
around it. The town was named Diocletianopol. Famous archeological monuments
such as the Thracian Tomb of Kazanluk
( and the Tomb at
Starosel ( are located within 20-50 km
from Hissar.

Hissar is situated in the centre of Bulgaria, 40 km north of the city of
Plovdiv and 160 km east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia. Both the
International airports of Sofia and Plovdiv can be used as arrival/departure
points for RANLP-2011. Ryanair is now operating flights between London
Stansted and Plovdiv two times per week. Sofia Airport is connected to
Plovdiv via a highway and it takes only 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach
Hissar from Sofia. In addition to the regular public transport (trains and
buses), the organisers will provide shuttle minibuses from/to Sofia and
Plovdiv airports at an inexpensive rate.
