*********** CALL FOR PAPERS ***********

Text Mining and Applications (TeMA 2011) Thematic Track of EPIA 2011

TeMA 2011 will be held at the 15th Portuguese Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (EPIA 2011), in Lisbon, Portugal, 10-13 October 2011. This
Track is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese Association for
Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).

[1] Track Description
Human languages are complex by nature and efforts in pure symbolic
approaches alone have been unable to provide fully satisfying results.
Text Mining and Machine Learning techniques applied to texts, raw or
annotated, brought up new insights and completely shifted the approaches
to Human Language Technologies. Both approaches, symbolic and
statistically based, when duly integrated, have shown capabilities to
bridge the gap between language theories and effective use of languages,
and can enable important applications in real-world heterogeneous
environment such as the Web.
The 4th Track on Text Mining and Applications (TeMA 2011) is a forum for
researchers working in Human Language Technologies i.e. Natural Language
Processing (NLP), Computational Linguistics (CL), Natural Language
Engineering (NLE), Text Mining (TM) and related areas.

Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified
below. Papers will be blindly reviewed by three members of the Programme
Committee. Best papers will be published at Springer, in LNCS series. If
there are additional papers whose quality is sufficiently high for
deserving to be presented at TeMA 2011, those other accepted papers will
be published in a conference proceedings book. Papers should not exceed
fifteen (15) pages in length and must be formatted according to the
information for LNCS authors.
