Call For Papers


September 18-20, 2013

Universidad Complutense de Madrid

The 29th edition of the Annual Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural
Language Processing (SEPLN) will take place in the Universidad Complutense
de Madrid on September 18-20, 2013. We also expect to organize associated
workshops on the evening of September 20th.

The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different
languages demands systems that enable us to access this vast library in an
increasingly more structured way.

In this same area, there is a renewed interest in improving information
accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual
environments. Many 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 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 at exposing new possibilities
of real applications and R&D projects in this field.

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.
* Language recognition.
* Monolingual and multilingual information extraction and retrieval.
* Question answering systems.
* Evaluation of NLP systems.
* Automatic textual content analysis.
* Sentiment and opinion analysis.
* 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, posters, tutorials, ongoing research projects and
prototype or product demonstrations connected with topics addressed in the
conference. Besides, we expect to organize associated workshops on the
evening of September 20th.

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

* The title of the communication.
* The complete names of the authors, their affiliations, address, and e-mail
(anonymous in the submitted proposal).
* An abstract in English and Spanish (maximum 150 words), including a list
of keywords or related topics.
* The paper can be written in Spanish or English. Its overall maximum
length will be 8 pages, including references.
* The documents must not include headers or footers.

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 delivery of proposals will be done through the following link:

The format of the SEPLN journal must be followed:

Projects and demos
As in previous editions, the organizers encourage participants to give oral
presentations of R&D projects and demos of systems or tools related to the
NLP field. For oral presentations on R&D projects to be accepted, the
following information must be included:
* Project title.
* Name, affiliation, address, e-mail and phone number of the project director.
* Funding institutions.
* Groups participating in the project.
* Abstract (4 pages maximum, including references).

For demonstrations to be accepted, the following information is mandatory:
