Natural language processing is one of the most challenging research areas. Most of the applications and online systems require more and more natural communication and utilization of multilingual platforms. The trend is indeed to go towards more intelligent systems and environments which make day-to-day activities and interactions as natural and convenient to a human user in his/her own language.
The aim of the Natural Language Processing track is to bring together researchers from the academia and the industry to share their latest developments in the area, be this to the theory, design, implementation or applications.
