Meeting Description:

NLDB is a series of conferences organized since 1995 dedicated to applications of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in the Information Systems field. In recent years, emphasis has been on topics such as sentiment analysis, information extraction, question answering, NLP for information systems, summarization, analysis of social media, use and construction of ontologies, and the semantic web. It aims at bringing together researchers, industrials, and potential users interested in these areas.

NLDB 2012 will take place from June 26 to June 28 in Groningen (the Netherlands).

More information is available at:


Invited Speakers:

Philipp Cimiano (Semantic Computing Group, University of Bielefeld, Germany)
Bernhard Thalheim (Information Systems Engineering, Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, Germany)

Call for Papers:

NLDB 2012 invites researchers from academia and industry to submit papers for oral or poster presentations on recent, unpublished research that addresses theoretical aspects, algorithms, applications, architectures for applied and integrated NLP, resources for applied NLP, and other aspects of NLP, as well as review and discussion papers.

We especially encourage submissions on one of the following topics:

1. Applications of NLP in Information Systems:

Multilingual Information Systems, NLP in Requirement Engineering, NLP in Knowledge Management, Semantic Data Integration and Data Cleaning

2. Social Media and Web Data:

Corpus analysis, Language identification, Text normalization, Robust NLP for social media, Text classification, Information Extraction and Sentiment Analysis for social media

3. Semantic Web Open Linked Data:

Ontology Learning and Alignment, Populating ontologies, Querying Ontologies and linked data, Semantic tagging and classification, Ontology-driven NLP

4. Question Answering (QA):

NL interfaces to databases, QA using web data, multi-lingual QA, Non-factoid QA (how/why/opinion questions, lists), geographical QA, QA corpora and training sets

5. Natural language and Ubiquitous Computing:

Pervasive Computing, Embedded, Robotic and Mobile Applications

6. Natural Language in Conceptual Modeling:

Analysis of Natural Language Descriptions, Terminological Ontologies, Consistency Checking, Metadata Creation and Harvesting, Ontology-driven Systems Integration, Ontology Management

7. NLP Applications:

Business Intelligence, Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis, QA systems, Event Detection, Named Entity and Event Detection, Information Extraction, Summarization, NLP for Data Mining, NLP for Data Warehouses, Plagiarism detection, Identity detection

Submission Guidelines:

Authors should follow the LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and submit their manuscripts in pdf via Easychair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nldb2012).

Submissions can be full papers (maximally 12 papers, including references), short papers (6 pages) or papers for a poster presentation (4 pages). The programme committee may decide to accept some full papers as short papers or poster contributions.

The Proceedings of NLDB 2012 will be published in the Lecture Notes for Computer Science series at Springer Verlag.

Note that we also plan to publish extended versions of a selection of the best papers after the conference in the Data and Knowledge Engineering Journal as a special issue.

Important Dates:

January 31, 2012: Deadline for paper submission
March 15, 2012: Notifications
March 31, 2012: Final versions due
June 26-28, 2012: Conference
