The workshop covers all aspects of weighted automata, ranging from the theory of weighted automata and quantitative logics to applications for real-time systems and natural language processing. The aim is to present tutorials and survey lectures by outstanding scientists in this area. Moreover, we encourage everybody to participate in this workshop and present their own technical contribution in this area.

Further to the workshops held in conjunction to the
International Conferences "Recent Advances in Natural
Language Processing" RANLP-2005, RANLP-2007 and RANLP-2009,
we are pleased to announce a call for workshop proposals for
RANLP-2011 invites the submission of workshop proposals on
any topic of interest to the NLP community, ranging from
fundamental research issues to more applied industrial or
commercial aspects. The format of the workshop will be
determined by the organisers. Workshops can vary in length
from a half day to full 1-2 days and can also feature demo
RANLP 2011 Second Call for Papers
RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) is one of the most established and competitive NLP conferences. The 8th RANLP conference will be held in Augusta hotel, Hissar, Bulgaria (12-14 September 2011). The conference will take the form of addresses from invited keynote speakers plus presentations of peer-reviewed individual papers. There will also be an exhibition area for poster and demo sessions. The conference will be preceded by two days of tutorials (10-11 September 2011). Post-conference workshops will be held on 15-16 September 2011.
BioNLP 2011 is the tenth workshop on biomedical natural language processing being held in conjunction with the annual ACL or NAACL meeting. BioNLP 2011 will be held at the ACL/HLT 2011 meeting in Portland, Oregon, under the auspices of SIGBIOMED, the ACL's special interest group for biomedical natural language processing. The meeting will be held June 23-24, 2011.
Research in NLP applications for education continues to progress using innovative NLP techniques - statistical, rule-based, or most commonly, a combination of the two. New technologies have made it possible to include speech in both assessment and Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS). NLP techniques are also being used to generate assessments and tools for curriculum development of reading materials, as well as tools to support assessment and test development. As a community we continue to improve existing capabilities and to identify and generate innovative
