NLDB 2011 (

16th International Conference on Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems

June 28-30, 2011, University of Alicante, Alicante, Spain

---- Call for Papers (EXTENDED DEADLINE) ----

Since 1995, the NLDB conference has aimed at bringing together researchers, industrials and potential users interested in various applications of Natural Language in the Database and Information System area. Natural Language Processing has become an important factor in the field of Information and Communication systems in the last years. It has contributed to both improving the development process from the viewpoints of the developers (e.g. the process of requirements engineering, conceptual modeling, validation etc.) and the usability of applications (e.g. natural language query interfaces, retrieval, semantic web etc.) To underline these inspiring connections, NLDB 2011 will take place from June 28 to June 30 in Alicante (Spain).

**** Topics and Interest ****

NLDB 2011 invites researchers to submit papers on recent, unpublished research on all aspects of Natural Language Processing related to information systems. The Program Committee also encourages people from the industry to submit papers reporting on industrial Natural Language projects. Contributions are welcome in, but not limited to the following topics:

- Natural Language in Conceptual Modeling:
Analysis of Natural Language Descriptions, Terminological Ontologies, Paraphrasing, Dynamic Modeling, Verification, Consistency Checking, Metadata Harvesting

- Natural Language Interfaces for Data Base Querying/Retrieval:
Natural Languages Interfaces for Database Querying, Verification of Database Queries by Paraphrasing, Semantic Analysis for Information Retrieval, NL Interaction with Databases

- Natural-Language-Based Integration of Systems:
Linguistic Aspects of View Integration, Linguistic Aspects of Data Warehouses, Natural Language Queries to Multi-databases systems, Data Integration and Data Cleaning, Ontology-driven Integration, Ontology Management

- Large-Scale Online Linguistic Resources:
Electronic Dictionaries, Question-Answer Corpora, Informal Ontologies, Linguistic Databases, Digital Libraries

- Applications of Computational Linguistics in Information Systems:
Multilingual Information Systems, NLP in Requirement Engineering, NLP in Knowledge Management, Ontology-driven NLP, Semiotics and Fundamentals

- Management of Textual Databases:
Text Classification, Information Extraction and Detection, Text Mining for creating Metadata, Document Management, Hypertext and Hyperbases

- Natural Language on Data Warehouses (DW) and Data Mining (DM):
Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling of DW's, Natural Language Interfaces for Modeling and/or Querying DW's, Semi-structured Document Data Warehouses, Intelligent Data Warehouses, Text Mining

- NLP Applications:
