KONVENS 2018: Call for Papers

The Conference on Natural Language Processing ("Konferenz zur Verarbeitung natürlicher Sprache", KONVENS) has been held every second year since 1992. KONVENS 2018 will take place September 19–21, 2018 in Vienna (Austria).

We welcome original, unpublished contributions on research, development, applications and evaluation, covering all areas of natural language processing, ranging from basic questions to practical implementations of natural language resources, components and systems. Contrary to previous years, we do not propose a special theme in order to invite everyone working in the field of Natural Language Processing or closely related areas to contribute to the conference.



Submissions must conform to the formatting guidelines given below, and must be made electronically through EasyChair:



We welcome two types of contributions:

  • Full papers for oral presentation (8 pages plus references)

Reviews will be anonymous. The conference language is English.
