-- First Call for Papers -- Special Issue on "Natural Language Processing and Text Mining" in Information journal Submission deadline: April 30th, 2019 https://www.mdpi.com/journal/information/special_issues/NLP_TM
**Overview** Natural language processing (NLP) encompasses a set of linguistically motivated strategies focused on building an interpretable representation from free text. NLP typically makes use of linguistic tasks such as lemmatization, PoS tagging, syntactic analysis, anaphora resolution, semantic role labeling, and so on. Text mining, on the other hand, is a set of Text2Data techniques for discovering and extracting relevant and salient knowledge from large amounts of unstructured text. Its main objective typically is not to understand all or even a large part of what a given speaker/writer has uttered, but rather to extract items of knowledge or regular patterns across a large number of documents, especially Web content and social media. Following recent advances in NLP, machine learning, neural-based deep learning and big data, text mining is now an even more valuable method for connecting linguistic theories with real-world NLP applications aimed at building organized data from unstructured text. Both hidden and new knowledge can be discovered by making use of NLP techniques and text mining methods, by relying on supervised or unsupervised learning strategies within big data environments.
**List of topics** Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the following topics (or other related topics):
relation extraction (including approaches to open information extraction)
named entity recognition
analysis of opinions, emotions and sentiments
text clustering, topic modelling, and classification
summarization and text simplification
distributional models and semantics
multiword and/or terminological extraction
entailment and paraphrases
Particular emphasis will be placed to work that makes use of new technologies and innovative linguistic models, or carrying out studies with cross-lingual approaches and minority languages.
**Manuscript Submission Information** Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
