NLP-TEMA’23 will be held at the 22th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence (EPIA 2023) taking place at Horta, Faial island, Azores, between September 5th-8th 2023. This track is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA), and part of the EPIA 2023 Conference on Artificial Intelligence, URL:

This announcement contains the following: [1] Track description; [2] Topics of interest; [3] Important dates; [4] Paper submission; [5] Track fees; [6] Organizing Committee; [7] Program Committee and [8] Contacts.

[1] Track Description
The Track of Natural Language Processing, Text Mining and Applications (NLP-TeMA 2023) is a forum for researchers working in Human Language Technologies, i.e. Natural Language Processing (NLP), Computational Linguistics (CL), Natural Language Engineering (NLE), Text Mining (TM), Information Retrieval (IR), and related areas.
A huge amount of information is openly published every day, on many different topics and written in natural language, thus offering new insights and many opportunities for innovative applications of Human Language Technologies.
Following advances in AI sub-fields such as NLP, Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL), NLP and TM are now even more valuable for bridging the gap between language theories and effective use of natural language contents, for harnessing the power of semi-structured and unstructured data, and to enable important applications in real-world heterogeneous environments. Both hidden and new knowledge can be discovered by using NLP and TM methods, at multiple levels and in multiple dimensions, and often with high commercial value.

Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified in section [2]. Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process and will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the track Program Committee. It is the responsibility of the authors to remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and to take reasonable care to assure anonymity during the review process. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings (a volume of Springer’s LNAI-Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence), provided that at least one author is registered in EPIA 2023 by the early registration deadline. EPIA 2023 proceedings are indexed in Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Science, Scopus, DBLP and Google Scholar. Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors in a track session.

The conference will grant the following awards:
* Best Paper Award, for the best research paper presented at the conference
* Best Student Paper Award, for the best research paper presented at the conference where the first author is a student

[3] Important dates
Paper submission deadline April 16, 2023
Notification of paper acceptance May 9, 2023
Camera-ready papers deadline June 15, 2023
Conference dates September 5-8, 2023

[4] Paper submission
Submissions must be full technical papers on substantial, original, and previously unpublished research. Papers can have a maximum length of 12 pages. All papers should be prepared according to the formatting instructions of Springer LNCS format and submitted in PDF format through the EPIA 2023 EasyChair submission page
For the preparation of their papers, authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

[5] Track Fees:
Track participants must register at the main EPIA 2023 conference.
