The Summer schools ''Current topics in Computational Linguistics'' and the RANLP-events has always been a meeting venue of scientists coming from all parts of the world. All participants greatly benefit from talks and exchange of ideas and experience.

The selection rate of the regular RANLP papers is very high: 14% for RANLP-2005, 11% for RANLP-2007, 10% for RANLP-2009, 17% for RANLP-2011, 12% for RANLP-2013, 22% for RANLP-2015, 14% for RANLP-2017 and 8.7% for RANLP-2019. Selected papers from RANLP-95, RANLP-97, RANLP-2003, RANLP-2005 and RANLP-2007 were published by John Benjamins in the series ''Current Issues in Linguistic Theory''. After 2009, all papers accepted at the main conference, the student research workshop and the associated workshops, are available at the ACL Anthology. After 2017, all papers at the RANLP events have DOI numbers and all Proceedings have ISBN-numbers.

Call for Papers:

We are pleased to announce that the 13th biennial RANLP conference will take place in September 2021 at the Black Sea city of Varna. In addition to the conference programme of competitively peer-reviewed papers reporting on the recent advances of a wide range of NLP topics, the RANLP conference features 5 keynote speeches. Poster and demo sessions will be held at the conference exhibition area. The conference will be preceded by three days of summer school on Deep Learning in NLP (1-3 September 2021) and two days of tutorials (4-5 September 2021). Post-conference workshops will be held on 9-10 September 2021. A Student Research Workshop will run in parallel to the main conference. The Student Research Workshop (now in its seventh edition) is a vibrant discussion forum for young researchers.

As from RANLP 2009, the papers accepted at RANLP and the associated workshops are included in the ACL Anthology. The RANLP proceedings are indexed by SCOPUS and DBLP.

TOPICS:
We invite papers reporting recent advances in all aspects of Natural Language Processing (NLP). We encourage contributions from a broad range of areas including, but not limited to, the following topics: phonetics, phonology, and morphology; syntax, semantics, discourse, pragmatics, dialogue, and lexicon; complexity; mathematical, statistical, machine learning and deep learning models; language resources and corpora; electronic dictionaries, terminologies and ontologies; linked data; POS tagging; parsing; semantic role labelling; word-sense disambiguation; multiword expressions; textual entailment; anaphora resolution; language generation; speech recognition; text-to-speech synthesis; multilingual NLP; machine translation, translation memory systems and computer-aided translation tools, text simplification and readability estimation; knowledge acquisition; information retrieval; text categorisation; information extraction; text summarisation; terminology extraction; question answering; opinion mining and sentiment analysis; fact checking; stance recognition; author profiling; dialogue systems; computer-aided language learning; NLP for biomedical texts; NLP for the Semantic web; theoretical and application-orientated papers related to NLP.
