*The Second International Workshop on Advances in Natural Language
Processing (ANLP 2018) *

*in conjunction with*
*The Fifth International Conference on Social Networks Analysis, Management
and Security(SNAMS-2018)* <>

* Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018*

The workshop aims at demonstrating recent Advances in Natural Language
Processing (ANLP) by bringing together leading academicians, scientists,
researchers and practitioners to discuss their findings in NLP. This area
of research has been constantly gaining momentum and attention over the
past few years as textual material become available in abundance (social
networks and web content) and advanced computational power become
accessible. This resulted in an interesting array of practical
applications. This is evident in the number of conferences, conference
tracks, workshops, special issues of journals dedicated to or issues
related to ANLP. Another indication of this growing interest is the surge
of papers, books, and other forms of publications related to NLP.
Noticeably, deep learning is dominating NLP as it did to other areas of
artificial intelligence. Deep learning is the modern application of earlier
neural network technology but with multiple layers that made possible with
modern computing technology. The application of deep learning technology to
NLP is progressing at a fast pace, and it is anticipated that we will see
many exciting new discoveries here in the next few years. Therefore, the
objective of this workshop is to present current and future advances in
NLP. Authors are encouraged to submit their original work, which is not
submitted elsewhere, to this workshop.

Topics of interest

Word embedding models.
Text summarization and compression.
Event extraction and semantic role labeling.
Sentiment analysis and classification.
Dialectal modeling.
Machine translation.
Deep learning applications.
Speech recognition, synthesis, and speaker identification.
NLP (annotated) resources such as dictionaries, thesauri, lexicons,
ontologies, datasets, etc.
Applications and technologies of NLP.
