The 14th International Conference on Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing
(FSMNLP, September 23–25, 2019, Dresden, Germany)

The international conference series “Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing” (FSMNLP) is the premier forum of the ACL Special Interest Group on Finite-State Methods (SIGFSM). SIGFSM serves researchers and practitioners in natural language processing (NLP) working on:

  • natural language processing (implementation, applications, language resources),
  • theoretical aspects, or
  • combinations thereof,

that have obvious relevance or an explicit relation to finite-state methods.

FSMNLP 2019 takes place in Dresden, Germany.
