NLP4IF (http://www.netcopia.net/nlp4if/) is dedicated to NLP methods that potentially contribute or hamper the free flow of information on the Internet, their impact, and to our understanding of the issues that arise in this area. We hope that our workshop will have a transformative impact on society by getting closer to achieving Internet freedom in countries where accessing and sharing of information are controlled by any forms of censorship.

We invite submissions of up to nine (9) pages maximum, plus bibliography for long papers and four (4) pages, plus bibliography, for short papers. For full submission guidelines, please refer to the workshop ahomepage. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
