Meeting Description:

The 29th edition of the Annual Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing (SEPLN) will take place in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid on September 18-20, 2013. We also expect to organize associated workshops on the evening of September 20th.

The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different languages demands systems that enable us to access this vast library in an increasingly more structured way.

In this same area, there is a renewed interest in improving information accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual environments. Many of the formal foundations for dealing appropriately with these necessities have been, and are still being established in the area of Natural Language Processing and its many branches: information extraction and retrieval, questions answering systems, machine translation, automatic analysis of textual content, text summarization, text generation, and speech recognition and synthesis.

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion and communication where the latest research work and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be presented by scientific and business communities. The conference also aims at exposing new possibilities of real applications and R&D projects in this field.

Moreover, as in previous editions, there is the intention of identifying future guidelines or 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.
