The 21th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing
(SEPLN) will take place on September 14-16, 2005 in Granada (Spain). As in
previous editions, the aim of SEPLN for this Conference is to promote the
dissemination of research, development and innovation activities conducted
by Spanish and foreign researchers in the field of Natural Language
Processing (NLP). The conference will provide a forum for discussion and
communication to facilitate an effective exchange of knowledge and
scientific materials that are necessary for promoting the publication of
relevant work and the establishment of means of collaboration with national
and international Institutions that are active in this field.


The main motivation of this conference is to provide the business and
scientific communities with an ideal forum for presenting their latest
research work and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing,
as well as to demonstrate the possibilities offered by these solutions and
to know about new projects. Consequently, the 21th SEPLN Conference is a
meeting place for presenting results and exchanging ideas concerning the
present state of development in this field of knowledge.

Furthermore, there is the intention of meeting the goal, achieved in
previous editions, of identifying future paths for basic research and
foreseen software applications, in order to compare them against the market
needs. Finally, the conference intends to be an appropriate forum in
helping new professionals to become active members in this field.
