Call For Papers

Natural Language Processing (NLP) refers to AI methods of communication with Intelligent Systems using a natural language such as English or Arabic. Processing of Natural Language is required when you employ an intelligent system like a robot in order to perform as per your instructions, for instance, assisting a doctor through a dialogue based clinical expert system, etc.

New trends of natural language processing systems are emerging, such as big data analysis, social network analysis, Internet of things, smart services, mobile computing, computer games, to name a few. Applications of these trends have been applied to various domains including education, travel and tourism, healthcare, among others. Many issues encountered during the development of these applications are resolved by incorporating language technology solutions, which involves speech processing, text extraction and retrieval, and deep learning, which are currently attractive topics within computational linguistics research areas.

The purpose of the “Intelligent in Natural Language Processing: Trends and application” edited book is to bring scientists, researcher scholars, practitioners, and students from academia and industry to present recent and ongoing research activities about the recent advances, techniques, and applications of natural language Processing systems and to allow the exchange of new ideas and application experiences.

Chapters of this Book aim to provide a collection of high quality research works that address broad challenges in both theoretical and application aspects of intelligent natural language processing and its applications. We invite colleagues to contribute original book chapters that will stimulate the continuing effort on the application of AI approaches to solve natural language processing problems.

This editing book is intended to present the state-of-the-art in research on natural language processing, computational linguistics, applied Arabic linguistics and related areas.
