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 and 2013) 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 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 4-6 tutorials on topics of particular interest and will be followed by specialised workshops in advanced subfields of NLP. A Student Research Workshop will be held in parallel with the main conference. The Student Research Workshops (now in their fourth edition) have become active discussion forums for young researchers.


RANLP-15 will be held in Augusta Hotel, Hissar, Bulgaria. The event venue offers excellent conference and leisure facilities. The organisers will provide shuttles from/to the International airports of Sofia and Plovdiv.
