14th International Conference on Parsing Technologies (IWPT 2015)
Wednesday, July 22, to Friday, July 24, 2015
University of the Basque Country (Bilbao, Spain)

The ACL Special Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing (SIGPARSE) invites submissions to its biennual conference on parsing technologies. IWPT 2015 will be the 14th conference in a series that started in 1989. The conference will be held between July 22 and July 24, 2015, in the city center of Bilbao (Spain), hosted by the University of the Basque Country. Please mark your calendars!

Conference Highlights:

As part of the main conference, there will be two invited keynotes:

Large-scale Semantic Parsing as Graph Matching
Mirella Lapata, University of Edinburgh, UK

Towards Universal Syntactic Processing of Natural Language
Slav Petrov, Google, USA

Interleaved with the main conference, there will be the 6th Workshop on Statistical Parsing of Morphologically Rich Languages (SPMRL), with its own invited speaker:
