Call For Papers
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
28th CONFERENCE OF THE SPANISH SOCIETY FOR NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING
September 5-7, 2012
Universidad Jaume I
The 28th edition of the Annual Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural
Language Processing (SEPLN) will take place in the University Jaume I of
Castellón on September 5, 6 and 7, 2012. We also expect to organize
associated workshops on 7 September 2012 evening.
The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different
languages demands systems that enable us to access this vast library in an
increasingly more structured way.
In this same area, there is a renewed interest in improving information
accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual
environments. Many of the formal foundations for dealing appropriately with
these necessities have been, and are still being established in the area of
Natural Language Processing and its many branches: Information extraction
and retrieval, Questions answering systems, Machine translation, Automatic
analysis of textual content, Text summarization, Text generation, and Speech
recognition and synthesis.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion and
communication where the latest research work and developments in the field
of Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be presented by scientific and
business communities. The conference also aims at exposing new possibilities
of real applications and R&D projects in this field. Moreover, as in
previous editions, there is the intention of identifying future guidelines
or paths for basic research and foreseen software applications, in order to
compare them against the market needs. Finally, the conference intends to be
an appropriate forum in helping new professionals to become active members
in this field.
Researchers and companies are encouraged to send communications, project
abstracts or demonstrations related to any language technology topic
including but not limited to the following:
* Linguistic, mathematic and psycholinguistic models of language.
* Machine learning in NLP.
* Computational lexicography and terminology.
* Corpus linguistics.
* Development of linguistic resources and tools.
* Grammars and formalisms for morphological and syntactic analysis.
