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

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;

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

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

 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

Submitted proposals will be reviewed with respect to the following criteria:

* Relevance, importance, and timeliness of the topics;

* Completeness, clarity, and quality of the workshop proposal;

* Experience of the organisers in the proposed topics;

* Viability of the workshop.
