Following the workshops held in conjunction with the International
Conferences "Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing" RANLP-2005,
RANLP-2007, RANLP-2009, RANLP-2011, and RANLP-2013, we are pleased to
announce a call for workshop proposals for RANLP-2015.

RANLP-2015 invites workshop proposals on any topic of interest to the
Natural Language Processing (NLP) community, ranging from fundamental
research issues to more applied industrial or commercial aspects. The
format of each workshop will be determined by its organisers. Workshops can
vary in length from a half day to full 1-2 days and can also feature demo
sessions. Accepted workshops will receive one free registration to
RANLP-2015 (full registration including tutorials, workshop, conference,
reception, conference dinner).

VENUE

The workshops will take place in the AUGUSTA SPA Hotel, Hissar, the main
RANLP-2015 conference venue. If more than 10 workshops are selected, the
RANLP-2015 organisers will provide space in some of the neighbouring hotels
in Hissar.

following:

1. Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the
goals and the technical issues that it will focus on;

2. Brief description of the target audience, including estimates of the
numbers of submissions and attendees (a tentative list of potential

Workshop invited speakers: If the workshop organisers intend to host an
invited talk, it is recommended that they invite somebody from the main
conference keynote speakers or participants. If the workshop organisers
decide to invite another speaker, it is very likely that the workshop
organisers will have to secure financial support for this speaker.
