Meeting Description:

STIL is the bi-annual Language Technology event supported by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and by the Brazilian Special Interest Group on Natural Language Processing (CE-PLN).

In 2021, STIL will be held as an online event collocated with BRACIS 2021 (The 10th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems), ENIAC 2021 (The 18th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence), and KDD-BR2021 (the 5th Brazilian Competition on Knowledge Discovery In Databases).

STIL will feature the following collocated events:
VII Workshop on Portuguese Description (JDP), and the
VII Student Workshop on Information and Human Language Technology (TILic).

The conference is multidisciplinary and covers a broad spectrum of disciplines related to Human Language Technology, such as Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics, and Information Science. It aims at bringing together both academic and industrial participants working on those areas.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field. The reviewing process will be double-blind and therefore papers should not display any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text.
Self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...”, must be avoided. Instead, authors should use “Silva previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...”.
