Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural Language Processing (NLP) has become a key technology of the information society. In recent years, research in NLP has mushroomed and many practical NLP applications have been brought to market including information retrieval systems and products for machine translation. Furthermore, recent large language models (LLM) such as GPT and BERT using Transformers have pushed the state-of-the-art on human-language interaction and large-scale document processing, However, it brings up numerous relevant unsolved theoretical and technological problems that await further research.

The Special Issue on new challenges in machine learning and NLP aims at assembling contributions by researchers from various fields of human language technology presenting results from the forefront of research and discussing the advanced state of the technology and its impact on our life.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
