Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing (RANLP) is one of
the best-established and competitive European NLP conferences.
It is held biennially in Bulgaria and grew out from the
international summer schools "Contemporary topics in
Computational Linguistics" organised for many years in Bulgaria
as international training events. The RANLP conferences in 1995,
1997, 2001, and 2003 had invited talks by leading names in NLP
and accepted papers of high quality, rigorously reviewed by an
international Programme Committee of well-known experts.
The conferences also featured tutorials on "hot" NLP topics
delivered by leading researchers. RANLP 2005 will be accompanied
for the first time by post-conference workshops. Volumes with
selected and revised papers from the conference are traditionally
published by John Benjamins in the "Current Issues in Linguistic
Theories (CILT)" series. RANLP-01 and RANLP-03 were partially
supported by the European Commission. RANLP-05 is under
negotiation for funding as a Marie Curie large conference.

RANLP-05 will feature keynote talks by:

       Ido Dagan     (Bar-Illan University, Israel)
       Robert Dale   (Macquarie University, Australia)
       Anne de Roeck (Open University, UK)
       Ralf Grishman (New York University, USA)

Submission deadline: End of April/beginning of May 2005
                     (the conference web site will have
                     updated information)

RANLP-05 will be held in the picturesque resort of Borovets.
Located in the Rila mountains, it is one of the best known
ski and tourist resorts in South-East Europe. Hotel Samokov,
the conference venue, offers excellent study and leisure
facilities. Borovets is 1 hour by car from Sofia and 2 hours
from Plovdiv with international airports in both cities
serving as arrival/departure points.
