International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese

Congresso internacional sobre processamento da língua portuguesa

*  *  *

Published on Monday, November 21, 2011


O congresso internacional sobre processamento da língua portuguesa vai realizar-se de 17 a 20 de Abril de 2012, em Coimbra (Portugal). Submissão de propostas até 13 de Novembro de 2011.


A Conferência Internacional sobre Processamento Computacional da Língua Portuguesa, ou PROPOR, é o principal evento na área do Processamento de Linguagem Natural, focado especificamente nos aspetos teóricos e tecnológicos da língua portuguesa.

Esta conferência tem sido um excelente fórum de intercâmbio de ideias e parcerias entre as comunidades científicas que se dedicam ao processamento automático da Língua Portuguesa. O PROPOR realiza-se, tipicamente, de dois em dois anos e tem sido realizado, ora em Portugal ora no Brasil, desde 1993.

The International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese, former Workshop on Computational Processing of the Portuguese Language - PROPOR - is the main event in the area of Natural Language Processing that is focused on Portuguese and the theoretical and technological issues related to this specific language.

The meeting has been a very rich forum for the interchange of ideas and partnerships for the research communities dedicated to the automated processing of the Portuguese language. PROPOR brings together research groups in the area, promoting the development of methodologies, linguistic resources and projects that can be shared among all researchers and practitioners in the field.

PROPOR, a tri- or bi-anual event, is hosted in Brazil and in Portugal . The meetings have been 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) and Porto Alegre, BR (2010).

Invited Speakers

Robert Berwick (MIT)
Paul Boersma (U. Amsterdam)

Topics of interest:

We invite submissions of papers describing work on any topic of language and speech processing of Portuguese from the industry or academia, including but not limited to:

  1. Human speech production, perception and communication, including: Linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language; phonetics, phonology and morphology; paralinguistic and nonlinguistic cues (e.g. emotion and expression);
  2. Linguistic Description and Theories: syntactic, semantic, prosodic and anaphoric phenomena, in (computational) linguistic formalisms like HPSG, LFG, Categorial Grammars, etc.;
  3. Natural Language Processing Tasks, including: parsing, tagging, chunking and segmentation, annotation, evaluation, semantic role labelling, grammar induction, subcategorization acquisition, sentiment analysis and opinion mining, using symbolic or statistical methods, etc.;
  4. Natural Language Processing Applications, such as word sense disambiguation, dialect identification, machine translation, information retrieval, plagiarism detection, dialogue systems, question answering, subtitling, e-learning, etc.;
  5. Speech Technologies, such as spoken language generation and synthesis; speech and speaker recognition; spoken language understanding;
  6. Speech Applications: Spoken language interfaces and dialogue systems; systems for information retrieval and information extraction from speech; systems for speech-speech translation; applications for aged and handicapped persons; applications for learning and education;
  7. Resources, standardization and evaluation: Spoken language resources, annotation and tools; Spoken language evaluation and standardization; NLP resources (raw and annotated corpora, dictionaries, grammars, ontologies, etc), annotation, tools; NLP evaluation and standardization;
  8. Language and Speech processing in academic disciplines, such as Speech and Hearing sciences, Psychology, Health, Biology, Linguistics, Cognitive Sciences, Engineering, Education.

Important dates:

  • November 13, 2011 - Extended Deadline for short and full paper submission
  • December 20, 2011 - Notification of acceptance

  • January 15, 2012 - Camera-ready papers due

  • April 17-20, 2012 - Conference


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.
  • Short papers: reporting ongoing work, position papers and potential ideas to be discussed.

Authors will be able to express their preference for full/short papers but the final decision is on the program chairs. Short papers may be selected for oral or poster presentation and should be up to five (5) pages of content and one (1) additional page of references in length. Full papers will be presented in an oral session and should be up to ten (10) pages of content and two (2) additional pages of references.

Submissions should be written in English.

Selected short papers will be taken under consideration for LNAI publication. Papers must be submitted in PDF, following the LNAI format, using the Springer Conference Service of PROPOR2012.

Submissions will be evaluated by at least three reviewers. As reviewing will be blind, the submission should not include the authors' names and affiliations, neither contain self-references that reveal identity, like, "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Separate author identification information is required as part of the submission process.
