of the

15th International Conference on

Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems

NLDB 2010

June 23-25, 2010, Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales, UK


decided to extend the deadline for full papers from Monday, February 15th
to Wednesday, February 24th, 2010.

Please share this with interested colleagues and students.

Papers are invited for the 15th International Conference on Applications of
Natural Language to Information Systems (NLDB’10). This year, NLDB’10, will
be held in Cardiff, Wales, from June 23-25, 2010. This year’s theme is
"Communicating with Anything, Anywhere in Natural Language".

Since 1995, the NLDB conference has aimed at bringing together researchers,
industrials and potential users interested in various applications of
Natural Language in the Database and Information System area. Natural
Language Processing has become an important factor in the field of
Information and Communication systems in the last years. It has contributed
to both improving the development process from the viewpoints of the
developers (e.g. the process of requirements engineering, conceptual
modelling, validation etc.) and the usability of applications (e.g. natural
language query interfaces, retrieval, semantic web etc.) To underline these
inspiring connections, NLDB 2010 will take place from June 23 to June 25 in
Cardiff (Wales).

Topics of Interest

NLDB 2010 invites researchers to submit papers on recent, unpublished
research on all aspects of Natural Language Processing related to
