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 training events. Selected papers from most RANLP 
conferences are traditionallypublished in a volume as part of John 
Benjamins’ series “Current Trends of Linguistic Research”. The papers 
accepted at RANLP-09, RANLP-11, and the associated workshops, were 
included in the ACL Anthology.

Weare pleased to announce the 9^th RANLP conference to be held in 
September 2013.The conference will take the form of addresses from 
invited keynote speakers plus presentations of peer-reviewed individual 
papers. There will also be an exhibition area for poster and demo 
sessions.The conference will be preceded by two days of tutorials (7-8 
September 2013). Post-conference workshops will be held on 
12-13September 2013. A Student Research Workshop will be run in parallel 
to the main conference. The RANLP Student Research Workshops have become 
active discussion forums for young researchers.

LOCATION

RANLP-2013, like RANLP-11, will be held in AUGUSTA SPA hotel, Hissar. 
HissarorHisarya (http://www.augustaspa.com <http://www.augustaspa.com/>, 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hisarya,_Bulgaria) is a famous resort since 
ancient times; it boasts 22 mineral springs with water temperatures 
between 37-52degree Celsius.Archaeological research has revealed that a 
town existed near the springs 5000 years BC. Many years later Thracians, 
and after them Romans, settled around the warm springs. The Roman 
emperor Diocletian visited the town in 293 and built a fortified wall 
around it.The town was named Diocletianopol.Famous archeological 
monuments such as:

- the Thracian Tomb of Kazanluk 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thracian_Tomb_of_Kazanlak

- and the Tomb at Starosel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starosel)

are located within 20-50 km from Hissar.


TRAVEL

Hissar is situated in the centre of Bulgaria, 40 km north of the city of 
Plovdiv and 160 km east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia. Both the 
International airports of Sofia and Plovdiv can be used as 
arrival/departure points for RANLP-2013. Ryanair is now operating 
flights between London Stansted and Frankfurt/Hahn to Plovdiv two times 
per week. Sofia Airport is connected to Plovdiv via a highway and it 
takes only 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach Hissar from Sofia. In addition 
to the regular public transport(trains and buses), the organisers will 
provide shuttle minibuses from/toSofia and Plovdiv airportsat an 
inexpensive rate.
