Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR) is the main event in the area of Human Language Processing that is focused on theoretical and technological issues of written and spoken Portuguese. The meeting has been a very rich forum for the exchange of ideas and partnerships for the research communities dedicated to the automated processing of Portuguese, promoting the development of methodologies, resources and projects that can be shared among researchers and practitioners in the field. The conference will consist of 3 days of paper presentations, special tracks and workshops.

PROPOR is in its 11th edition and it has been hosted in Brazil and in Portugal: Lisbon/PT (1993), Curitiba/BR (1996), Porto Alegre/BR (1998), …vora/PT (1999), Atibaia/BR (2000), Faro/PT (2003), Itatiaia/BR (2006), Aveiro/PT (2008), Porto Alegre/BR (2010) and Coimbra/PR (2011).
