RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the most
established 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
international training events. All RANLP conferences in 1995, 1997, 2001,
2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 featured keynote talks by leading names in NLP
as well as presentations/papers of high quality, rigorously reviewed by a
Programme Committee of well-known experts. The acceptance rates for full
papers in recent years were as follows: 14% (RANLP-2005), 11% (RANLP-2007)
and 10% (RANLP-2009). Selected papers from most RANLP conferences were
published in a volume as part of John Benjamins’ series “Current Trends of
Linguistic Research”. The conference is preceded by tutorials on current
NLP topics and is followed by international workshops. The papers accepted
at RANLP-09 and the associated workshops are included in the ACL

Main conference submission deadline: end of April/beginning of May 2011
