RANLP-09 Second Call for Papers and Submission Information


International Conference RANLP-2009

September 14-16, 2009
Borovets, Bulgaria

Further to the successful and highly competitive 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th,
5th and 6th conferences 'Recent Advances in Natural Language
Processing' (RANLP), we are pleased to announce the 7th RANLP
conference to be held in September 2009.

The conference will take the form of addresses from invited keynote
speakers plus peer-reviewed individual papers. There will also be an
exhibition area for poster and demo sessions.

We invite papers reporting on recent advances in all aspects of
Natural Language Processing (NLP). The conference topics are announced
at the RANLP-09 website. All accepted papers will be published in the
full conference proceedings and included in the ACL Anthology. In
addition, volumes of RANLP selected papers are traditionally published
by John Benjamins Publishers; currently the volume of Selected
RANLP-07 papers is under print.
