Meeting Description:

The Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing (SEPLN) is pleased to invite you to participate in the 37th edition of the SEPLN Conference.

The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different languages calls for systems to enable us to access this vast library in an increasingly more structured way. In this same area, there is a renewed interest in improving the information accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual environments. Most 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, language models, question answering, machine translation, automatic analysis of textual content, text summarization, text simplification, text generation, and speech recognition and synthesis.

The main aim of the SEPLN Conference is to provide, both to the scientific community and to the industry, a forum where to present and share the latest research and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP). The SEPLN Conference also gives the possibility to present real NLP applications, as well as different R+D projects.

Additionally, 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.
