17th International conference on Application of Natural Language 
Processing to Information Systems

Groningen, The Netherlands, June 26-28 2012

NLDB is a series of conferences  organized since 1995  dedicated to
applications of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in the Information 
field. In recent years, emphasis has been on topics such as sentiment
analysis,  information extraction, question answering, NLP for information
systems, summarization, analysis of social media, use and construction of
ontologies, and the semantic web. It aims at bringing together researchers,
industrials, and potential users interested in these areas.

NLDB 2012 will take place from June 26 to June 28  in Groningen (the 

Proceedings appear in the Springer LNCS series. After the conference, 
authors of
the best papers are invited to submit an extended version of their paper 
for a
special issue of Data and Knowledge Engineering.

More information is available at www.nldb.org

**** Invited Speakers ****

Philipp Cimiano (Semantic Computing Group, University of Bielefeld, Germany)

Bernhard Thalheim (Information Systems Engineering, 
Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, Germany)

**** Topics and Interest ****

NLDB 2012 invites researchers from academia and industry to submit 
papers for oral
or poster presentations on recent, unpublished research that addresses 
aspects, algorithms, applications, architectures for applied and 
integrated NLP,
resources for applied NLP, and other aspects of NLP, as well as review 
and discussion papers.

We especially encourage submissions on one of the following topics:

- Applications of NLP in Information Systems:
Multilingual Information Systems, NLP in Requirement Engineering, NLP in
Knowledge Management, Semantic Data Integration and Data Cleaning

- Social Media and Web Data
Corpus analysis, Language identification, Text normalization,
Robust NLP for social media, Text classification, Information Extraction
and Sentiment Analysis for social media

- Semantic Web Open Linked Data
Ontology Learning and Alignment, Populating ontologies, Querying Ontologies
and linked data, Semantic tagging and classification, Ontology-driven NLP

- Question Answering (QA)
NL interfaces to databases, QA using web data, multi-lingual QA, Non-factoid
QA (how/why/opinion questions, lists), geographical QA, QA corpora and 

- Natural language and Ubiquitous Computing:
Pervasive Computing, Embedded, Robotic and Mobile Applications.

- Natural Language in Conceptual Modeling:
Analysis of Natural Language Descriptions, Terminological Ontologies,
Consistency Checking, Metadata Creation and Harvesting, Ontology-driven 
Integration, Ontology Management

- NLP Applications
Business Intelligence, Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis, QA systems,
Event Detection, Named Entity and Event Detection, Information Extraction,
Summarization, NLP for Data Mining, NLP for Data Warehouses, Plagiarism 
Identity detection

**** Submission Guidelines ****

Authors should follow the LNCS format 
and submit their manuscripts in pdf via Easychair

Submissions can be full papers (maximally 12 papers, including references),
short papers (6 pages) or papers for a poster presentation (4 pages). The
programme committee may decide to accept some full papers as short papers
or poster contributions.

The Proceedings of NLDB 2012 will be published in the Lecture Notes for
Computer Science series at Springer Verlag.

Note that we also plan to publish extended versions of a selection of 
the best papers
after the conference in the Data and Knowledge Engineering Journal as a 
special issue.
