The Conference on Natural Language Processing («Konferenz zur Verarbeitung Natürlicher Sprache», KONVENS) seeks to offer a broad perspective on current research and developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language processing. It provides a forum for researchers from all disciplines relevant to this field of research to present their work.
The overall theme of the 2014 conference will be
?Information science and language technology: interaction — co-operation — synergies?
which reflects the interests of the host institution in exploring connections between information science and computational linguistics/natural language processing. Specific topics that we invite contributions on:
Information Retrieval and Information Extraction,
Methods and resources for evaluating IR/IE,
NLP for User-Generated Content,
Analysis of subjective language (opinion mining / sentiment analysis),
Usability and user interaction with language tools.
We also invite contributions in the area of computational linguistics that are unrelated to the above themes.
Konvens 2014 is organized by the Institute for Information Science and Natural Language Processing at Hildesheim University. It is aimed at an international audience. Conference languages are English and German.
