PROPOR 2018
The 13th International Conference on the Computational Processing of
Portuguese
September 24-26, 2018 -- Canela, RS, Brazil
Deadline for paper submission: April 15, 2018

The International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese
(PROPOR) is the main event in the area of human language processing that is
focused on theoretical and technological issues of written and spoken
Portuguese. The meeting has been a very rich forum for the exchange of
ideas and partnerships for the research communities dedicated to the
automated processing of Portuguese, promoting the development of
methodologies, resources and projects that can be shared among researchers
and practitioners in the field.

We call for papers describing work on any topic related to computational
language and speech processing of Portuguese by researchers in the industry
or academia. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  * Human speech production, perception and communication
  * Linguistic description and theories
  * Natural language processing tasks (e.g. parsing, word sense
disambiguation, coreference resolution),
  * Natural language processing applications (e.g. question answering,
subtitling, summarization, sentiment analysis)
  * Speech technologies (e.g. spoken language generation, speech and
speaker recognition, spoken language understanding)
  * Speech applications (e.g. spoken language interfaces, dialogue systems,
speech-to-speech translation)
  * Resources, standardization and evaluation (e.g. corpora, ontologies,
lexicons, grammars)
  * Language and speech processing in academic disciplines
  * Portuguese language variants and dialect processing
  * Multilingual studies, methods, applications and resources including
Portuguese

PROPOR 2018 will be the 13th edition of the biennial PROPOR conference,
hosted alternately in Brazil and in Portugal. Past meetings were held in
Lisbon, PT (1993);  Curitiba, BR (1996); Porto Alegre, BR (1998);  Évora,
PT (1999);  Atibaia, BR (2000); Faro, PT (2003); Itatiaia, BR (2006);
Aveiro, PT (2008); Porto Alegre, BR (2010);  Coimbra, PT (2012); São
Carlos, BR (2014) and Tomar, PT (2016).


### Submissions

Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Authors are invited
to submit two kinds of papers:

  * Full papers - Reporting substantial and completed work, especially
those that may contribute in a significant way to the advancement of the
area. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included.
Full papers can have up to 8 content pages + 2 pages for references.
  * Short papers - Reporting small, focused contributions such as ongoing
work, position papers, potential ideas to be discussed, negative results,
or an interesting application nugget. Short papers can have up to 4 content
pages + 1 page for references.

Each submission will be evaluated by at least three reviewers. As reviewing
will be double-blind, submitted papers must be anonymized, that is, they
should not contain the authors' names and affiliations. Authors must avoid
self-references that reveal identity, like, "We previously showed (Smith,
1991) ...". Instead, they should prefer citations such as "Smith (1991)
previously showed ...". Separate author identification information will be
required as part of the submission process.

Submissions should be written in English. At submission time, only PDF
format is accepted. For the final versions, authors of accepted papers will
be given 1 extra content page to take the reviews into account. Authors of
accepted papers will be requested to send the source files for the
production of the proceedings. All submitted papers must conform to
Springer LNAI stylesheet using the LaTeX or MS Word templates below:

  * LaTeX styelesheet: ftp://ftp.springernature.com/
cs-proceeding/llncs/llncs2e.zip
  * MS Word stylesheet: ftp://ftp.springernature.com/
cs-proceeding/llncs/word/splnproc1703.zip

### Multiple-submission policy

For submissions that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications, this information must be provided at submission time. If a
submission is accepted, authors must notify the program chairs indicating
which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. Papers that will
be (or have been) published elsewhere, cannot be accepted for publication
or presentation.


### Important dates

  * Full and short paper submission deadline: April 15, 2018 - 23:59
(GMT-11)
  * Notification of paper acceptance or rejection: June 15, 2018
  * Camera-ready papers due: July 1, 2018
  * Conference: September 24-26, 2018


### Publication

The proceedings of PROPOR 2018 will be published by Springer as a volume of
the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series. They will be available
online. To ensure publication, at least one author of each accepted paper
must complete a full registration for PROPOR 2018 by the early registration
deadline.
