RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) has established itself over the years as one of the most influential and competitive NLP conferences. The event is held biennially and grew out of the International summer schools "Contemporary topics in Computational Linguistics", which were organised for many years as training events. Selected papers from most RANLP conferences have been regularly published in a volume as part of John Benjamins’ series “Current Trends of Linguistic Research”.
