Since 1983, with a biannual character, the SEPLN journal offers an opportunity to present new works, communicate results, and/or discuss problems to researchers in Natural Language Processing.

In addition to providing a framework that allows researchers to present their new works, communicate results or discuss possible problems and obstacles encountered during their research career, the SEPLN journal aims to generate an exchange of opinions on future research guidelines.

On the other hand, the SEPLN journal pretends to reflect and discuss in depth on specific topics of maximum relevance such as the extraction of information, the retrieval of information or the evaluation of natural language processing systems.
