Track on Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP)

Call for Papers

The availability and size of textual information have grown dramatically in different areas such as academic, work or individual. Emails, working papers, scientific articles or social media publications are some examples of large sources of data that are presented in natural language. This raises a challenge, since the language presents a type of unstructured data that contains ambiguity, among other properties that increase the difficulty in the processing task. In this context, there is a growing interest in improving the accessibility to information and its exploitation in different environments by companies and organizations. For all this, the applications of Natural Language Processing have become very important today. SIMBig has become an important meeting point of computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. The Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP) track of SIMBig will provide a forum that brings both researchers and practitioners to discuss: research trends and techniques related to Natural Language Processing.
