Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques, which addresses the problems of automated processing, understanding and generation of natural human languages, plays an important role in various intelligent information processing fields. The World Wide Web nowadays becomes an extremely important source of information and knowledge, which is expected to continue to grow in the amount. Intelligent processing and mining techniques are critical for extracting essential information and knowledge from massive Web data. NLP is putted a high premium in web information processing. Recently, to meet the requirements of processing massive web contents, the neural and machine learning based NLP techniques attracted much research interests. Abundant related researches were reported on AAAI, IJCAI, ACL, SIGIR, ICML and ICONIP while encouraging discussions were conducted. These indicate the increasing importance of NLP in Web Era.

We apply to hold a special session on natural language processing and intelligent Web information processing in ICONIP2011 for providing a forum to exchange the exploration on the state-of-the-art natural language processing technologies for retrieving, organizing, analyzing and mining the various kinds of Web information. Especially, this session encourages the research on neural and machine learning based approach in NLP and web information processing. We will present the latest results and considerations, and discuss the future trend on this area. We hope such a session is helpful to promote the incorporation of neural and machine learning algorithms and NLP/Web information processing applications.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

  • Content-based Web Information Filtering
  • Intelligent Human-Web Interaction
  • Language Generation
  • Machine Learning for Information Processing
  • Machine Translation
  • Multilingual Processing
  • Multimodal Systems and Representations
  • Neural Approach for Natural Language Processing
  • Ontology-Based Information Extraction and Retrieval
