-- First Call for Papers --
TeMA 2020 will be held at the 20th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence (EPIA 2020) Lisboa, Portugal (7th to 9th September 2020) This track is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA): https://epia2020.inesc-id.pt/ Paper submission deadline: April 15, 2020
## Track Description The 10th Track of Text Mining and Applications (TeMA 2020) is a forum for researchers working in Human Language Technologies, i.e. Natural Language Processing (NLP), Computational Linguistics (CL), Natural Language Engineering (NLE), Text Mining (TM), Information Retrieval (IR), and related areas. - The most natural form of sharing knowledge is indeed through textual documents. Especially on the Web, a huge amount of textual information is openly published every day, on many different topics and written in natural language, thus offering new insights and many opportunities for innovative applications of Human Language Technologies. - Following recent advances in general IA sub-fields such as NLP, Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL), text mining is now even more valuable as tool for bridging the gap between language theories and effective use of natural language contents, for harnessing the power of semi-structured and unstructured data, and to enable important applications in real-world heterogeneous environments. Both hidden and new knowledge can be discovered by using text mining methods, at multiple levels and in multiple dimensions, and often with high commercial value. Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified in section . Revision of the papers will be double-blind by the members of the Program Committee. All accepted papers will be published by Springer in a volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) corresponding to the proceedings of the 20th EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence, EPIA 2020.
