25th International Conference on Natural Language & Information Systems
Online conference, June 24 - 26; DFKI Saarbrücken, Germany
The conference fee is 140 Euro. For this money you will get access to the virtual conference, access to the electronic proceedings during the conference, (in fact, this will be for a period of 4 weeks around the conference), and a copy of the proceedings, sent to you after the conference. In addition to the reviewed papers (see http://nldb2020.sb.dfki.de/conference-program/), there will be 3 invited talks, by Claire Gardent, Josef van Genabith, and Ehud Reiter (see http://nldb2020.sb.dfki.de/invited-speakers/ <http://nldb2020.sb.dfki.de/invited-speakers/>).
Registration can be made via http://nldb2020.sb.dfki.de/registration/
Since 1995, the NLDB conference brings together re- searchers, industry practitioners, and potential users in- terested in various application of Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems fields.The term “Information Systems” has to be considered in the broader sense of Information and Communication Systems, including Big Data, Linked Data and Social Net- works.
The field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) has it- self recently experienced several exciting developments. In research, these developments have been reflected in the emergence of neural language models (Deep Learning, Word2Vec) and a (renewed) interest in various linguis- tic phenomena, such as in discourse and argumentation theory (argumentation mining). Regarding applications, NLP systems have evolved to the point that they now offer real-life, tangible benefits to enterprises. Many of these NLP systems are now considered a de-facto offering in business intelligence suites, such as algorithms for recom- mender systems and opinion mining/sentiment analysis as well as question-answering systems.
It is against this backdrop of recent innovations in NLP and its applications in information systems that the 25th edition of the NLDB conference – NLDB2020, takes place. We welcome research and industrial contributions, de- scribing novel, previously unpublished works on NLP and its applications across a plethora of topics.
