XXXIV International Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing
19th to 21st September 2018
at Virgen del Rocio University Hospital (Seville, Spain)
The huge amount of information available in digital format in different languages calls for systems enabling the access to this vast library in an increasingly more structured way. Furthermore, there is a renewed interest in improving information accessibility and information exploitation in multilingual environments. Most of the formal foundations for dealing appropriately with these necessities have been, and are still being, established in the area of Natural Language Processing and its many branches: Information Extraction and Retrieval, Question Answering Systems, Machine Translation, Automatic Analysis of Textual Content, Text Summarization, Text Generation, and Speech Recognition and Synthesis.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion and communication where the latest research work and developments in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be presented by scientific and business communities. The conference also aims to present new possibilities of real applications and R&D projects in this field.
Moreover, like in previous years, this conference intends to identify future guidelines or paths for basic research and expected software applications, in order to compare them against the market needs. Finally, the conference provides a useful forum for the exchange of views and ideas, being especially beneficial to new professionals who intend to become active members in the field.
Likewise, this year a Doctoral Symposium has been organised again, which will provide doctoral students investigating issues in natural language processing with a unique opportunity to have interaction with other researchers and receive feedback regarding their research.

STRUCTURE OF THE CONFERENCE
The conference will be a three-day event and will include sessions to present papers, posters, tutorials, ongoing research projects and prototype or product demonstrations connected with topics addressed in the conference.
This year a Doctoral Symposium will be held likewise, so as to give doctoral students the opportunity to receive feedback on their thesis project and to interact with other researchers about the proposed research.
Besides, different workshops will be held on 18th September.
