NLDB 2012

Since 1995, the NLDB conference aims at bringing together researcher, industrials and potential users interested in various application of Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems field. The integration of databases and natural language has been an utopia for many years. However, progress has been made and this is now an established field thanks to developments in Natural Language and technologies that made the storage and manipulation of large electronic dictionaries possible. As Information Systems are now evolving into the communication area, the term databases should be considered in the broader sense of information and communication systems The use of Natural Language in Software Engineering has contributed to both improving the development process from the viewpoints of developers (improve the process of conceptual modeling, validation, etc) and the usability of applications by users (natural language query interfaces, semantic webs, etc).

NLDB 2012 will take place from June 26 to June 28 in Groningen, the Netherlands.
