Call For Papers
XXXV INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE SPANISH SOCIETY FOR NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING
XXXV Congreso Internacional de la Sociedad Española para el Procesamiento del Lenguaje Natural
September 25-27, 2019
Bizkaia Aretoa, BILBAO, Spain
****************** DEADLINE EXTENSION: March 31st *****************************
It is a pleasure to invite you to SEPLN2019. The conference is organised by the Aholab and Ixa Research Groups from the University of the Basque Country, and will take place at the Bizkaia Aretoa from Bilbao on September 25-27, 2019.
The huge amount of information available in digital format in different languages calls for systems enabling the access to this vast library in an increasingly more structured way. Furthermore, there is a renewed interest in improving information accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual environments. Most 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, Question 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 to present new possibilities of real applications and R&D projects in this field.
Moreover, like in previous years, this conference intends to identify future guidelines or paths for basic research and expected software applications, in order to compare them against the market needs. Finally, the conference provides a useful forum for the exchange of views and ideas, being especially beneficial to new professionals who intend to become active members in the field.
Topics of interest
Researchers and companies are encouraged to send communications, project abstracts or demonstrations on topics related to language technology, including but not limited to:
