Call For Papers

Special Issue: Advance Arabic Natural Language Processing (ANLP) and its Applications
The International Journal Information Processing & Management
Call for papers:
Arabic is one of the fastest growing languages on the Internet in terms of both content and speakers. Due to the commercial and strategic importance of the Arabic language, the past few decades has seen a significant rise in the interest in the field of Arabic Natural Language Processing (ANLP). This is evident in the number of conferences, conference tracks, workshops, special issues of journals dedicated to ANLP or issues related to ANLP. Another indication of this growing interest is the surge of papers, books, and other forms of publications related to ANLP. Realizing the importance of fostering the development of ANLP, IP&M has dedicated a special issue to this important field. Researchers are invited to submit their best work to this special issue.
The topics include, but are not limited to the following:
• Morphological analysis.
• Tokenization, segmentation, chunking, parsing, etc.
• Part-of-speech tagging.
• Stemming.
• Information retrieval and extraction.
• Text mining.
• Big data analytics.
• ANLP interoperability.
• Social media analysis.
• Named Entity Recognition.
• Word Sense Disambiguation.
• Keyword extraction.
• Text summarization and compression.
• Authorship analysis.
• Event extraction.
• Semantic role labeling.
• Sentiment analysis and opinion mining.
• Topic modelling.
• Language and dialect modeling.
• Automatic machine translation.
• Speech recognition.
• Speech synthesis
• Speaker identification.
• Acoustic modelling.
• Phonetic dictionaries
• Optical character recognition.
• Pedagogy.
• Assistive technologies.
• ANLP (annotated) resources such as dictionaries, thesauri, lexicons, ontologies, datasets, etc.
• Commercial applications of ANLP.
Submissions must address issues related to the processing of Arabic data in any of its versions (classic, Quranic, modern standard, dialectal, etc.) and any of its formats (text, audio, multimodality, etc.). Authors must consider reproducibility issues. i.e., they must provide enough details about their work such that other researchers are able to repeat their experiments and reproduce the same results. This is of special importance for both work-in-progress and commercial applications. An extended work from a previously published conference papers must have an extension of at least of 50% . The authors need to clearly show the differences between the submitted paper and the early published conference paper (s). During the submission process, authors need to select SI:Arabic-NL as the type of their submission.
