RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the most
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. Previous RANLP conferences (1995, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007,
2009 and 2011) featured keynote talks by leading experts in NLP as well as
presentations/papers of high quality, rigorously reviewed by a Programme
Committee of well-known scientists. The papers accepted at RANLP-09,
RANLP-11 and the associated workshops were included in the ACL Anthology.
It is envisaged that RANLP papers will be available in the ACM Digital
Library as well. The conference will be preceded by 4-6 tutorials on
current hot topics and will be followed by specialised workshops in
advanced subfields of NLP. A Student Research Workshop will be held in
parallel to the main conference. The Student Research Workshops (now in
their third year) have become active discussion forums for young
