23rd International Conference on Natural Language & Information Systems 13rd - 15th June 2018, Paris, France


As a continuation of the NLDB tradition, all accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.

We are also planning a Special Issue in Data and Knowledge Engineering, an ISI-indexed, highly reputed journal of Elsevier. Authors of the best conference papers, to be selected at the end of the conference, will be invited to submit an extended version of the work to the journal.

Submission information can be found at the bottom of this page.


Important Dates
NLDB 2018 at a glance

NLDB 2018 invites researchers from academia and industry to submit their papers on recent, unpublished research that addresses theoretical aspects, algorithms and architectures of NLP applications in Information Systems (IS). Papers describing creation of resources, as well as survey and discussion papers, are also welcomed.

For its 23rd edition, we explicitly solicit submissions on recent advances in NLP, including trendsetting and relevant topics as neural language models and argumentation mining.
Specifically, we encourage submissions dealing with the following topics:

Argumentation Mining and Applications
Neural Language Models
NLP Applications in IS and in Social Media and Web Analytics
Question Answering (QA)
Semantic Web, Open Linked Data, and Ontologies
Natural Language in Conceptual Modeling
Natural language and Ubiquitous Computing
Submission Information
All accepted papers will be included in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Springer proceedings of the conference, and, therefore, must comply with the LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).

Submitted papers can be of 4 types:
  1. Long papers (max. 12 pages, including references)
  2. Short papers (max. 6 pages, including references)
  3. Poster papers (max. 4 pages, including references)
  4. Demo papers (max. 4 pages, including references)
Please note that the program committee may decide to accept some long papers as short papers or poster/demo papers, depending on the content quality. The same applies to short papers, which can be accepted as poster/demo contributions. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or having more than the max. number of pages will not be reviewed and thus automatically rejected. The papers need to be original and not submitted or accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal.
Authors must submit their manuscripts (in PDF) via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nldb2018). Submission via other means (e.g., emails) will be rejected.
Important: We plan to publish extended versions of a selection of the best papers after the conference in the Data & Knowledge Engineering journal as a special issue.
