RANLP-2013: 9th International Conference on

Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing

Main conference: 9-11 September 2013

Workshops: 12-13 September 2013 (Thursday-Friday)

Augusta SPA Hotel, Hissar, Bulgaria



Following the workshops held in conjunction to the International
Conferences "Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing"
RANLP-2005, RANLP-07, RANLP-2009, and RANLP-2011, we are pleased
to announce a call for workshop proposals for RANLP-2013.

RANLP 2013 invites the submission of workshop proposals on any
topic of interest to the Natural Language Processing (NLP)
community, ranging from fundamental research issues to more
applied industrial or commercial aspects. The format of the
workshop will be determined by the organisers. Workshops can vary
in length from a half day to full 1-2 days and can also feature
demo sessions. Accepted workshops will receive one free
registration to RANLP-2013 (full registration incl. tutorials,
workshop, conference, reception, conference dinner).


The workshops will take place at the AUGUSTA SPA Hotel, Hissar,
the main RANLP-2013 conference venue. If more than 10 workshops
are selected, the RANLP-2013 organisers will provide space at
some of the neighbouring hotels in Hissar.


Workshop proposals due: 28 February 2013

Workshop selection: 15 March 2013

Workshop website due: 28 March 2013

Proposals should be no longer than five pages and should contain:

1. A title and a brief technical description of the workshop,
   specifying the goals and the technical issues that it will
   focus on;

2. Brief description of the target audience, including estimates
   of the numbers of submissions and attendees (a tentative list
   of potential contributors would be useful);

3. List of related workshops/events held in the last three years
   or to be held in 2013;

4. Tentative workshop program committee;

5. Names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
   proposed Organising Committee;

6. Description of the experience of the proposed organisers in
   the workshop topics and in organising events.

The workshop Organising Committee is responsible for:

· Workshop website;

· Call for papers/participation;

· Paper submission, review process, authors notification,
audio/visual requirements;

· Verifying the camera-ready copies, providing electronic
conference proceedings, generated with the conference management

Workshop invited speakers: If the workshop organisers intend to
host an invited talk, it is recommended that they invite somebody
from the main conference keynote speakers or participants. If the
workshop organisers decide to invite another speaker, it is very
likely that the workshop organisers will have to secure financial
support for the invited speaker.

The RANLP-2013 Organising Committee is responsible for:

· Link to a workshop's web page;

· Publishing the workshop proceedings;

· Providing the workshop venue;

· Registration, audio/visual support, coffee breaks, registration
facilities, Internet access.
