Call For Papers

The Twelfth International Conference on Natural Language Processing (ICON-2015) will be held at IIITM-Kerala, Trivandrum during December 13-16, 2015. The ICON conference series is a forum for promoting interaction among researchers in the field of Natural Language Processing in India and abroad. The main conference is on December 14-15, 2015. This will be preceded by one day of pre-conference tutorials/workshops on December 13, 2015 and post conference tutorials/workshops on December 16, 2015.

ICON proceedings will be indexed in ACL Anthology. ACL Anthology is a digital archive of research papers in Computational Linguistics for major international conferences under the control of Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) which is a major association in CL.

Papers are invited on substantial, original and unpublished research on all aspects of Natural Language Processing, with a particular focus on languages, issues, and applications relevant to India. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

POS Tagging
Word Sense Disambiguation
Machine Translation/Statistical Machine Translation
Statistical Methods
Knowledge-based Methods
Annotated Corpora
Lexical Resources
Sentiment Analysis
Machine Learning in NLP
Performance Evaluation of NLP Systems
Information Retrieval
Automatic Text Summarization
Question Answering
Dialog Systems
Speech Corpora
Speech Recognition
Speech Synthesis

Format of Submission

Papers in English, not exceeding 10 pages, should be submitted on the online portal at Papers should include an abstract of about 100-200 words. Please see the style file at

Blind review

Papers in electronic form in the PDF format, anonymous for blind review, should be submitted. Kindly ensure that authors' names and affiliations are given only on a separate cover sheet. If your paper contains text of languages other than English, please attach relevant font files along with your submission.
Call for Tutorials/Workshops

Proposals are invited for pre-conference tutorials/workshops. Tutorials/Workshops can be of half-day or full-day duration. The proposal should be presented in the form of a 200-word abstract, one page topical outline of the content, description of the proposers and their qualifications relating to the tutorial content. Workshops on Linguistic aspects of South Asian Languages are also welcome.

Send tutorial/Workshop proposals to the ICON-2015 Secretariat. For further information, please refer to the Conference URL or contact the ICON-2015 Secretariat.
NLP tools contests at ICON 2015

The ICON 2014 tools contest is on on Statistical Machine Translation in Indian Languages(IL). Machine translation (MT) is the process of encoding the syntactic and semantic information of a source language text into a target language. In past two decades, MT has shown very promising results particularly using Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) especially for English and other European Languages. However, its effectiveness in translating sentences within Indian Languages (IL) and between English and Indian languages needs to be explored further. The NLP tool contest in ICON 2014 aims to collectively explore the effectiveness of SMT while translating within ILs and between English and ILs.
