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, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017) 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. A Student Research Workshop will be held in parallel to the main conference. The papers accepted at RANLP-09 – RANLP-17 and the associated workshops were included in the ACL Anthology. The RANLP proceedings is indexed by SCOPUS and DBLP. After 2017, all accepted papers have DOI numbers. The conference will be preceded by tutorials on current hot topics and will be followed by specialised workshops in advanced subfields of NLP. The Student Research Workshops (now in their sixth edition) have become active discussion forums for young researchers.

Expected conference submission deadline: end of April/beginning of May 2019
