Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on extended versions of selected papers from the upcoming 7th edition of the Text Mining and Applications (TeMA 2017) track of the EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence.This track will feature contributions from researchers working in Human Language Technologies (HLT), i.e., Natural Language Processing (NLP), Computational Linguistics (CL), Natural Language Engineering (NLE), Text Mining (TM), Information Retrieval (IR), and related areas.

A detailed description for the track, together with the topics of interest that constitute the focus of its call for papers, is available online at https://web.fe.up.pt/~epia2017/thematic-tracks/tema/. The track’s description emphasizes the fact that, especially on the Web, a huge amount of textual information is openly published every day, offering new insights and many opportunities for innovative applications of Human Language Technologies. Both hidden and new knowledge can be discovered by using text mining methods, at multiple levels and in multiple dimensions, and often with high commercial value. By seeking contributions related to this general theme, TeMA is deeply related to particular subject areas listed for the Information journal, such as knowledge management, social media and social networks, and information extraction.

The authors of the best papers presented at TeMA 2017, selected after the revision of the original papers by members of the track’s program committee, and thus corresponding to high quality work describing significant advances in the area, will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to this Special Issue. Members of the TeMA program committee will act as reviewers for the extended versions submitted to this Special Issue (i.e., each submission will be blindly reviewed by three researchers in its specific area).
