RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the
best-established and competitive European NLP conferences. It is held
biennially in Bulgaria and grew out from the international summer schools
"Contemporary topics in Computational Linguistics" organised for many
years in Bulgaria as international training events. The RANLP conferences
in 1995, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007 had invited talks by leading
names in NLP and accepted papers of high quality, rigorously reviewed by
an international Programme Committee of well-known experts. Most of the
RANLP conferences published a volume with Selected papers in the John
Benjamins series “Current trends of linguistic research”. The conferences
also featured tutorials on hot NLP topics delivered by leading
researchers. RANLP 2007 was accompanied by nine international workshops.

Submission deadline: End of April/beginning of May 2009
(the conference web site will have updated information)

RANLP-09 will be held in the picturesque resort of Borovets. Located in
the Rila mountains, it is one of the best known ski and tourist resorts in
South-East Europe. Hotel Samokov, the conference venue, offers excellent
study and leisure facilities.
