The Conference on Natural Language Processing ("Konferenz zur Verarbeitung Natürlicher Sprache", KONVENS) aims at offering a broad perspective on current research and developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language processing. It provides a forum for researchers from all disciplines relevant to this field of research to present their work.
The central theme of the 10th KONVENS is
"Semantic approaches in Natural Language Processing".
We especially encourage the submission of contributions addressing linguistic aspects of meaning. Topics of interest include deep as well as shallow approaches, and knowledge-based as well as data-driven methods for modelling and acquiring semantic information. We equally encourage submissions on the use of semantic information in applications of language technology. Submissions should describe original and unpublished research or innovative industrial applications.
Young researchers in particular are encouraged to present their completed work for discussion.
