    SEPLN 2003


    (19th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing SEPLN)

    September 10-12, 2003
    Universidad de Alcal de Henares


    The 19th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing
    (SEPLN) will take place on September 10-12, 2003 in Alcal de Henares
    (Spain). As in previous editions, the aim of SEPLN for this Conference is
    to promote the dissemination of research, development and innovation
    activities conducted by Spanish and foreign researchers in the field of
    Natural Language Processing (NLP). The conference will provide a forum for
    discussion and communication to facilitate an effective exchange of
    knowledge and scientific materials that are necessary for promoting the
    publication of relevant work and the establishment of means of
    collaboration with national and international Institutions that are active
    in this field.


    The main motivation of this conference is to provide the business and
    scientific communities with an ideal forum for presenting their latest
    research work and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing,
    as well as to demonstrate the possibilities offered by these solutions and
    to know about new projects. Consequently, the 19th SEPLN Conference is a
    meeting place for presenting results and exchanging ideas concerning the
    present state of development in this field of knowledge.

    Furthermore, there is the intention of meeting the goal, achieved in
    previous editions, of identifying future paths for basic research and
    foreseen software applications, in order to compare them against the market
    needs. Finally, the conference intends to be an appropriate forum in
    helping new professionals to become active members in this field.


    Researchers and businesses are encouraged to send communications, project
    abstracts or demonstrations related to any of the following topics:

    - Linguistic, mathematic and psycholinguistic models of language
