*INTRODUCTION* ----------------------- The 32nd. Edition of the Annual Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing (SEPLN) will take place in the University of Salamanca (Salamanca, Spain) on 14-16 September 2016.
The huge amount of information available in digital format and in different languages calls for systems to enable us to access this vast library in an increasingly more structured way. In this same area, there is a renewed interest in improving information accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual environments. Many of the formal foundations for dealing appropriately with these necessities have been, and are still being established in the area of Natural Language Processing and its many branches: Information extraction and retrieval, Questions answering systems, Machine translation, Automatic analysis of textual content, Text summarization, Text generation, and Speech recognition and synthesis.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion and communication where the latest research work and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be presented by scientific and business communities. The conference also aims at exposing new possibilities of real applications and R&D projects in this field. Moreover, as in previous editions, there is the intention of identifying future guidelines or 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.
This year we will offer a Doctoral Symposium. It will provide doctoral students investigating topics in natural language processing with a unique opportunity to have interaction with other researchers and receive feedback regarding their proposed research.

*STRUCTURE OF THE CONFERENCE* ------------------------------------------------------- The conference will last three days, and will consist of sessions devoted to presenting papers, posters, tutorials, ongoing research projects and prototype or product demonstrations connected with topics addressed in the conference. Besides, we expect to organize associated workshops.
*SUBMISSION OF CONTRIBUTIONS* ---------------------------------------------------- All contributions must be submitted electronically using the Myreview system available at: http://www.sepln.org/myreview-sepln57/
Authors are encouraged to send theoretical or application-oriented proposals related to NLP. The proposals must include the following sections:
· The title of the communication.
· An abstract in English and Spanish (maximum 150 words) and a list of keywords.
· The paper can be written in Spanish or English. Its overall maximum length will be 8 pages, including references.
· The documents must not include headers or footers.
· Papers should NOT include the names of the authors.
The papers proposed will be reviewed at least by three reviewers, and can be accepted to be presented either as posters or as communications, depending on the program necessities. However, no distinction will be made between communications and posters in the printed version of the SEPLN journal.
**** *IMPORTANT NOTE ON CAMERA READY* * ****
The final version of the paper (camera ready) should be submitted together with a cover letter explaining how the suggestions of the reviewers were implemented in the final version. This cover letter will be taking in mind in order to accept or finally reject the selected paper. The format of the SEPLN journal must be followed: http://www.sepln.org/?page_id=1285&lang=en
In addition, all proposals will have to comply with the following requirements, depending on whether they pare papers, demos or projects.
*PROJECTS AND DEMOS* ------------------------------------- As in previous editions, the organizers encourage participants to give oral presentations of R&D projects and demos of systems or tools related to the NLP field. For oral presentations on R&D projects to be accepted, the following information must be included:
· Project title.
· Name, affiliation, address, e-mail and phone number of the project
· Funding institutions.
· Groups participating in the project.
· Abstract (4 pages maximum, including references).
For demonstrations to be accepted, the following information is mandatory:
