Meeting Description:

NLDB is a series of conferences organized since 1995 dedicated to
applications of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in the Information
Systems field. In recent years, emphasis has been on topics such as
sentiment analysis, information extraction, question answering, NLP for
information systems, summarization, analysis of social media, use and
construction of ontologies, and the semantic web. It aims at bringing
together researchers, industrials, and potential users interested in these
areas. The integration of databases and natural language has been a utopia
for many years. However, progress has been made and this is now an
established field thanks to developments in Natural Language and
technologies that made the storage and manipulation of large electronic
dictionaries possible. As Information Systems are now evolving into the
communication area, the term databases should be considered in the broader
sense of information and communication systems. The use of Natural Language
in Software Engineering has contributed to both improving the development
process from the viewpoints of developers (improve the process of
conceptual modeling, validation, etc) and the usability of applications by
users (natural language query interfaces, semantic webs, etc).

NLDB 2012 will take place from June 26 to June 28 in Groningen (the

Call for Papers:

NLDB 2012 invites researchers from academia and industry to submit papers
for oral or poster presentations on recent, unpublished research that
addresses theoretical aspects, algorithms, applications, architectures for
applied and integrated NLP, resources for applied NLP, and other aspects of
NLP, as well as review and discussion papers.

We especially encourage submissions on one of the following topics:

- Applications of NLP in Information Systems:

Multilingual Information Systems, NLP in Requirement Engineering, NLP in
Knowledge Management, Semantic Data Integration and Data Cleaning

- Social Media and Web Data:

Corpus Analysis, Language Identification, Text Normalization, Robust NLP
for Social Media, Text Classification, Information Extraction and Sentiment
Analysis for Social Media

- Semantic Web Open Linked Data:

Ontology Learning and Alignment, Populating Ontologies, Querying Ontologies
and Linked Data, Semantic Tagging and Classification, Ontology-driven NLP

- Question Answering (QA):

NL Interfaces to Databases, QA Using Web Data, Multilingual QA, Non-factoid
QA (how/why/opinion questions, lists), Geographical QA, QA Corpora and
Training sets

- Natural Language and Ubiquitous Computing:

Pervasive Computing, Embedded, Robotic and Mobile Applications

- Natural Language in Conceptual Modeling:

Analysis of Natural Language Descriptions, Terminological Ontologies,
Consistency Checking, Metadata Creation and Harvesting, Ontology-driven
Systems Integration, Ontology Management

- NLP Applications:

Business Intelligence, Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis, QA systems,
Event Detection, Named Entity and Event Detection, Information Extraction,
Summarization, NLP for Data Mining, NLP for Data Warehouses, Plagiarism
Detection, Identity Detection

Submission Guidelines:

Authors should follow the LNCS format
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and submit their
manuscripts in pdf via Easychair

Submissions can be full papers (maximally 12 papers, including references),
short papers (6 pages) or papers for a poster presentation (4 pages). The
programme committee may decide to accept some full papers as short papers
or poster contributions.

The Proceedings of NLDB 2012 will be published in the Lecture Notes for
Computer Science series at Springer Verlag. After the conference, authors
of the best papers are invited to submit an extended version of their paper
for a special issue of Data and Knowledge Engineering.

Important Dates:

January 15, 2012: Deadline for paper submission
March 15, 2012: Notifications
March 31, 2012: Final versions due
June 26-28, 2012: Conference
