XXXVI International Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing

SEPLN 2020

September 23rd to 25th 2020

Málaga - ETSI Informática - Universidad de Málaga

The Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing (SEPLN) is pleased to
invite you to participate in the 36th edition of the SEPLN Conference to be
held alongside the sixth edition of the Spanish Congress of Computer Science
(CEDI). The SEPLN Conference will take place on 23-25 September 2020 at the
Higher Technical School of Computer Engineering (E.T.S.I. Informática) of
the University of Malaga, located in the Teatinos Campus, 4 km west from the
city centre.

The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different
languages calls for systems to enable us to access this vast library in an
increasingly more structured way. In this same area, there is a renewed
interest in improving the 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, Questions answering systems,
Machine translation, Automatic analysis of textual content, Text
summarization, Text generation, and Speech recognition and synthesis.

The main aim of the SEPLN Conference is to provide, both to the scientific
community and to the industry, a forum where to present and share the latest
research and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing
(NLP). The SEPLN Conference also gives the possibility to present real NLP
applications, as well as different R+D projects.

Moreover, as in previous editions, there is the intention of identifying
future guidelines or paths for basic research and foreseen software
applications, in order to compare them against the market needs. Finally,
the conference intends to be an appropriate forum in helping new
professionals to become active members in this field.

Researchers and companies are encouraged to send communications, project
abstracts or demonstrations related to any language technology topic
including but not limited to the following:

- Linguistic, mathematic 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.

All information related to the conference can be found in the web:

Structure of the Conference
The conference will last three days and will consist of sessions devoted to
presenting papers, ongoing research projects and prototype or product
demonstrations connected with topics addressed in the conference.

In this edition, we also organize a Doctoral Symposium and so give doctoral
students the opportunity to receive feedback on their thesis project, and
interact with other researchers about the proposed research.

The information related to the Symposium will be published in the webpage of

Besides, the 22nd of September the Iberian Languages Evaluation Forum will
take place as an co-located workshop. More information at:
