Text Mining and Applications (TeMA’09) Track of EPIA09

TeMA-2009 will be held at the 14th Portuguese Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (EPIA 2009), in University of Aveiro, Portugal, 12-15 October
2009. This track is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese
Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).

[1] Track Description:
Pure symbolic methods for Language Processing alone are unable to address
human languages complexity. Text Mining and Machine Learning techniques
applied to text, raw or annotated, brought up new insights and completely
shifted the approaches to Human Language Technologies. Both approaches,
symbolic and statistical based, when duly integrated, bridge the gap
between language theories and effective use of languages, and enable
important applications. Our aim, with this track, is to bring together
innovative contributions to fill in this gap.
The track of Text Mining and Applications is a forum for researchers
working in natural language processing (NLP), computational linguistics
(CL), Machine Learning (ML) and related areas.
Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified
below. Papers will be blindly reviewed by three members of the Programme
Committee. Best papers will be published at Springer, in LNAI series. If
there are additional papers whose quality is sufficiently high for
deserving to be presented at TeMA’09, those other accepted papers will be
published in a conference proceedings book.
