Meeting Description: RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the most competitive NLP conferences. The event is held biennially and grew out of the International summer schools ''Contemporary topics in Computational Linguistics'' which were organised for many years as international training events. Previous RANLP conferences (1995, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015) featured keynote talks by leading experts in NLP, as well as presentations/papers of high quality, rigorously reviewed by a Programme Committee of well-known scientists. The papers accepted at RANLP-09, RANLP-11, RANLP-13, RANLP-2015, and the associated workshops were included in the ACL Anthology. The RANLP proceedings are indexed by SCOPUS and DBLP. The conference will be preceded by 4 tutorials on current hot topics and will be followed by specialized workshops in advanced subfields of NLP. A Student Research Workshop will be held in parallel to the main conference. The Student Research Workshops (now in their fifth edition) have become active discussion forums for young researchers.
