Call For Papers

24th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing

September 10-12, 2008

Escuela Politécnica Superior, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, SPAIN

The 24th edition of the conference of the Spanish Society for Natural
Language Processing (SEPLN) will take place on September 10-12, 2008 in
Escuela Politécnica Superior of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
The aim of SEPLN is to provide a forum for discussion and communication
where the latest research works, developments and innovation activities
in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be presented by
scientific and business communities. In this conference, new
possibilities of real applications of NLP and I+D projects in this field
are exposed.
Moreover, as in previous editions of this conference, 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 businesses are encouraged to send communications,
Project abstracts or demonstrations related to any of the following topics:
- Linguistic, mathematic and psycholinguistic models of language
- Corpus linguistics
