The 15th International Conference on Parsing Technologies

Pisa, September 20-22, 2017

IWPT 2017 continues the tradition of biennial meetings of SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). This year the conference is organized by the University of Pisa and the Institute for Computational Linguistics “A. Zampolli” of the Italian National Research Council (ILC-CNR).

IWPT will take place in Pisa, Italy, within easy reach of most of Europe through its international airport.

IWPT addresses all aspects of computational structural analysis of natural language. For specific topics, see the call for papers.

IWPT will be co-located with DepLing 2017, which will immediately precede IWPT from September 18 to 20. On September 20 the two conferences will overlap and present the results of a joint shared task on Extrinsic Parser Evaluation (EPE).
