14th National Natural Language Processing Research Symposium Pre-Conference Activity:
Student Research Workshop
February 02-03, 2018, Bicol University, Legazpi
Organized by the Computing Society of the Philippines – Special Interest Group on Natural Language Processing (CSP SIG-NLP), National University (NU), and Bicol University.
The 14th National Natural Language Processing Research Symposium Pre-Conference Activity: Student Research Workshop (14NNLPRS: SRW) is a regular gathering of researchers from different fields working on the analysis, processing, and generation of human languages. The main conference 14NNLPRS will be held in Baguio in May 2018 and will be hosted by the University of the Cordilleras. SRW as a pre-conference activity is intended to provide students – both undergraduate and graduate – a forum to present their work on NLP and receive feedback.
14NNLPRS: SRW will be a venue for discussing the various challenges and opportunities students face in integrating human language technologies to analyze various types of data. Papers on preliminary works describing the challenges and opportunities faced by the authors are also invited. Select papers will be invited to a special issue of the Philippine Computing Journal.
