FINAL Call For Papers

The first International Conference on Recent Advances in Natural
Languages Processing (RANLP) was held in 1995. Given the high quality 
of the presented papers and the overall success of the event, we now 
plan to organise the conference biennially.

Selected papers from the proceedings of the conference are published
as a book by John Benjamins as part of their Current Issues in
Linguistic Theory (CILT) series.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Papers reporting on recent advances in all aspects of Natural Language
Processing and Language Engineering are invited, including but not
limited to: pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax, and the lexicon;
phonetics, phonology, and morphology; text understanding and
generation; multilingual NLP; machine translation, machine-aided
translation, translation aids and tools; corpus-based language
processing; electronic dictionaries; written and spoken natural
language interfaces; knowledge acquisition; terminology; text
summarisation; message routing, text classification; computer-aided
language learning; language resources; evaluation, assessment and
standards in language engineering; and theoretical and
application-oriented papers related to NLP of every kind.

The conference also welcomes new results in NLP based on modern
alternative theories and methodologies to the mainstream techniques of
symbolic NLP such as analogy-based, statistical, connectionist as well
as hybrid and multimedia approaches.

In general, the conference especially welcomes any contribution to the
area of language processing in view of the imminent developments in
information technology.
