Call For Papers

XXXV Congreso Internacional de la Sociedad Española para el Procesamiento del Lenguaje Natural
SEPLN 2019

September 25-27, 2019

Bizkaia Aretoa, BILBAO, Spain

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:

Linguistic, mathematical and psycholinguistic models of language
Machine learning in NLP
Computational lexicography and terminology
Corpus linguistics
Development of linguistic resources and tools
Grammars and formalisms for morphological and syntactic analysis
Semantics, pragmatics and discourse
Lexical ambiguity resolution
Monolingual and multilingual text generation
Machine translation
Speech synthesis and recognition
Dialogue systems
Audio indexing
Monolingual and multilingual information extraction and retrieval
Question answering systems
Evaluation of NLP systems
Automatic textual content analysis
Sentiment analysis and opinion mining
Plagiarism detection
Negation and speculation processing
Text mining in blogosphere and social networks
Text summarization
Image retrieval
NLP in biomedical domain
NLP-based generation of teaching resources
NLP for languages with limited resources
NLP industrial applications

Structure of the Conference

The conference will be a three-day event and will include sessions to present papers, posters, tutorials, ongoing research projects and prototype or product demonstrations connected with topics addressed in the conference.

Besides, different workshops will be held on 24th September.
Guide for authors

All contributions must be submitted electronically using the Myreview system available at

Authors are encouraged to send theoretical or application-oriented proposals related to NLP. The proposals must include the following sections and features:

The title of the communication;
An abstract in English and Spanish (maximum 150 words) and a list of keywords;
The paper can be written in either Spanish or English. Its overall maximum length will be 8 pages, including references;
The documents must not include headers or footers;
Papers should NOT include the names of the authors.

The papers proposed will be reviewed at least by three reviewers, and can be accepted to be presented either as posters or as communications, depending on the program necessities. However, no distinction will be made between communications and posters in the printed version of the SEPLN journal.

The final version of the paper (camera ready) should be submitted together with a cover letter explaining how the suggestions of the reviewers were implemented in the final version. This cover letter will be considered in order to accept or finally reject the selected paper.

Manuscript submission guidelines for the SEPLN journal must be followed:

In addition, all proposals will have to comply with the following requirements, depending on whether they are papers, demos or projects.
