Tutorials: September 7-8, 2013 (Saturday-Sunday)
Main Conference: September 9-11, 2013 (Monday-Wednesday)
Workshops: September 12-13, 2013 (Thursday-Friday)

RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) has
established itself over the years as one of the most
influential and competitive NLP conferences. The event is
held biennially and grew out of the International summer
schools "Contemporary topics in Computational Linguistics",
which were organised for many years as training events. The
9th RANLP conference will be held on 9-11 September 2013.
The conference will take the form of addresses from invited
keynote speakers plus presentations of peer-reviewed
individual papers. There will also be an exhibition area for
poster and demo sessions. The conference will be preceded by
two days of tutorials (7-8 September 2013). Six post-
conference workshops will be held on 12-13 September 2013. A
Student Research Workshop will run in parallel to the main

We invite papers reporting on recent advances in all aspects
of Natural Language Processing (NLP). We encourage the
representation of a broad range of areas including, but not
limited to, the following: phonetics, phonology, and
morphology; syntax, semantics, discourse, pragmatics,
dialogue, and lexicon; mathematical and statistical models
and complexity; language resources and corpora; electronic
dictionaries, terminologies and ontologies; POS tagging;
parsing; semantic role labelling; word-sense disambiguation;
textual entailment; anaphora resolution; generation; speech
recognition; text-to-speech synthesis; multilingual NLP;
machine translation, translation memory systems and
computer-aided translation tools, text simplification and
readability estimation; knowledge acquisition; information
retrieval; text categorisation; information extraction; text
summarisation; term extraction; question answering; opinion
mining; dialogue systems; computer-aided language learning;
NLP for biomedical texts; NLP for the Semantic web; and
theoretical and application-orientated papers related to

RANLP-2013, like RANLP-11, will be held in AUGUSTA SPA
hotel, Hissar. Hissar or Hisarya (HYPERLINK
",_Bulgaria"http://en.wi,_Bulgaria) is a well-known resort
since ancient times; it boasts 22 mineral springs with water
temperatures between 37-52 degree Celsius. Archaeological
research has revealed that a town existed near the springs
5000 years BC. Many years later Thracians, and after them
Romans, settled around the warm springs. The Roman emperor
Diocletian visited the town in 293 and built a fortified
wall around it. The town was named Diocletianopol. Famous
archaeological monuments such as:
- the Thracian Tomb of Kazanluk HYPERLINK
- and the Tomb at Starosel (HYPERLINK
are located within 20-50 km from Hissar.

Hissar is situated in the centre of Bulgaria, 40 km north of
the second largest Bulgarian city, Plovdiv, and 160 km east
of the capital, Sofia. Both the international airports of
Sofia and Plovdiv can be used as arrival/departure points
for RANLP-2013. Ryanair is now operating flights between
London Stansted and Frankfurt/Hahn to Plovdiv two times per
week. Sofia Airport is connected to Plovdiv via a motorway
and it takes only 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach Hissar from
Sofia. In addition to the regular public transport (trains
and buses), the organisers will provide shuttle minibuses
from/to Sofia and Plovdiv airports at an inexpensive rate.
