Introduction

The 19th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language
Processing (SEPLN) will take place on September 10-12, 2003 in
Alcal� de Henares (Madrid, Spain). As in previous editions, the
aim of SEPLN for this Conference is to promote the dissemination of
research, development and innovation activities conducted by Spanish
and foreign researchers in the field of Natural Language Processing
(NLP). The conference will provide a forum for discussion and
communication to facilitate an effective exchange of knowledge and
scientific materials that are necessary for promoting the
publication of relevant work and the establishment of means of
collaboration with national and international Institutions that are
active in this field.

Objectives

The main motivation of this conference is to provide the business and
scientific communities with an ideal forum for presenting their latest
research work and developments in the field of Natural Language
Processing, as well as to demonstrate the possibilities offered by
these solutions and to know about new projects. Consequently, the 19th
SEPLN Conference is a meeting place for presenting results and
exchanging ideas concerning the present state of development in this
field of knowledge.

Furthermore, there is the intention of meeting the goal, achieved in
previous editions, of identifying future paths for basic research and
foreseen software applications, in order to compare them against the
market needs. Finally, the conference intends to be an appropriate
forum in helping new professionals to become active members in this
field.

Structure of the Conference
