RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) has
established itself over the years as one of the most influential
and competitive NLP conferences. The event is held biennially and
grew out of the International summer schools "Contemporary topics
in Computational Linguistics", which were organised for many
years as training events. The 9th RANLP conference will be held
on 9-11 September 2013. The conference will take the form of
addresses from invited keynote speakers plus presentations of
peer-reviewed individual papers. There will also be an exhibition
area for poster and demo sessions. The conference will be
preceded by two days of tutorials (7-8 September 2013). Six
post-conference workshops will be held on 12-13 September 2013. A
Student Research Workshop will run in parallel to the main

aspects of Natural Language Processing (NLP). We encourage the
representation of a broad range of areas including, but not
limited to, the following: phonetics, phonology, and morphology;
syntax, semantics, discourse, pragmatics, dialogue, and lexicon;
mathematical and statistical models and complexity; language
resources and corpora; electronic dictionaries, terminologies and
ontologies; POS tagging; parsing; semantic role labelling;
word-sense disambiguation; textual entailment; anaphora

LOCATION RANLP-2013, like RANLP-11, will be held in AUGUSTA SPA
hotel, Hissar. Hissar or Hisarya (HYPERLINK
"http://www.augustaspa.com/"http://www.augustaspa.com, HYPERLINK
is a well-known resort since ancient times; it boasts 22 mineral
springs with water temperatures between 37-52 degree Celsius.
Archaeological research has revealed that a town existed near the
springs 5000 years BC. Many years later Thracians, and after them
Romans, settled around the warm springs. The Roman emperor
Diocletian visited the town in 293 and built a fortified wall
around it. The town was named Diocletianopol. Famous
archaeological monuments such as:
- the Thracian Tomb of Kazanluk HYPERLINK
- and the Tomb at Starosel (HYPERLINK
  are located within 20-50 km from Hissar.

TRAVEL Hissar is situated in the centre of Bulgaria, 40 km north
of the second largest Bulgarian city, Plovdiv, and 160 km east of
the capital, Sofia. Both the international airports of Sofia and
Plovdiv can be used as arrival/departure points for RANLP-2013.
Ryanair is now operating flights between London Stansted and
Frankfurt/Hahn to Plovdiv two times per week. Sofia Airport is
connected to Plovdiv via a motorway and it takes only 1 hour and
45 minutes to reach Hissar from Sofia. In addition to the regular
public transport (trains and buses), the organisers will provide
shuttle minibuses from/to Sofia and Plovdiv airports at an
inexpensive rate.
