The International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR) is the main regular forum for presentation and discussion of the best research results in the area of natural language and speech processing focused on the Portuguese language.

The PROPOR series was initiated in 1993 and has since then being held in Brazil and Portugal. Previous meetings took place in Lisbon (1993), Curitiba (1996), Porto Alegre (1998), Évora (1999), Atibaia (2000), Faro (2003), Itatiaia (2006), Curia (2008), Porto Alegre (2010), Coimbra (2012) and São Carlos (2014).

Call for papers:

We cordially invite anyone researching in any topic of language and speech processing of Portuguese to submit a paper to PROPOR2016.

Topics of interest include: • any applied task (e.g. speech recognition, word sense disambiguation, dialect identification, etc.), • application (e.g. question answering, subtitling, summarization, etc.), • basic issue (e.g. parsing, evaluation, etc.), • subdomain (e.g. phonology, semantics, dialogue, etc.), • type of resource (e.g. corpora, ontologies, grammars, etc.), • linguistic phenomenon (e.g. prosody, anaphora, modality, etc.), • in any area benefiting from language and speech processing of Portuguese (e.g. information retrieval, e-learning, e-humanities, etc.), • under any methodological perspective (e.g. hybrid, symbolic, machine learning, etc.), • from the industry or • from any contributing academic discipline, including but not limited to Computation, Artificial Intelligence, Engineering, Linguistics or Cognitive Science.

We seek to select papers reporting substantial, original and completed work, especially those that may contribute in a significant way to the advancement of the area. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included. Submissions are anonymized and will be evaluated by at least three reviewers.

The proceedings of PROPOR2016 will be published at Springer as a volume of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series. They will be available online, and the paper version will be distributed among participants of the conference.

The next PROPOR is hosted by the University of Lisbon and the NLX-Natural Language and Speech Group from its Department of Informatics at the Faculty of Sciences.

This conference will be held in the historical city of Tomar, a world heritage site, 1 hour north of Lisbon by train. Tomar is one of Portugal's historical jewels and more significantly was the last Templar town to be commissioned for construction.
