Main conference


The 14th edition of the International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR 2020) will be held at the Colégio do Espírito Santo  in Evora (Portugal) from March 2nd to 4th, 2020.,

PROPOR is the main scientific meeting in the area of language and speech technologies for the Portuguese language and on the basic and applied research issues related to this language. The event is supported by the PROPOR steering committee.

The meeting has been a very rich forum for the interchange of results and partnerships for the researchers dedicated to the computational processing of Portuguese and the technologies for the Portuguese language. It brings together research groups inthe area, promoting the development of methodologies, language resources, processing tools, applications and projects that may be shared among researchers and practitioners in the field.

PROPOR is a biennial event hosted in Brazil and in Portugal. Past meetings were held in Lisbon, PT (1993);  Curitiba, BR (1996);  Porto Alegre, BR (1998);  Évora, PT (1999);  Atibaia, BR (2000)Faro, PT (2003)Itatiaia, BR (2006) ; Aveiro, PT (2008)Porto Alegre, BR (2010);  Coimbra, PT (2012)São Carlos, BR (2014)Tomar, PT (2016) and Canela, BR (2018).

Invited Speakers


The proceedings of PROPOR 2020 will be published by Springer as a volume of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series.

They will be available online. To ensure publication, at least one author of each accepted paper must complete a full registration for PROPOR 2020 by the early registration deadline.

The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally-accepted conference papers to a special Issue of the journal “Information”, published by MDPI, in open access. The selection of these best papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process and expected impact on the research community. Each submission to this special Issue should contain at least 50% of new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases and a change of title, abstract and keywords. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action. At least two members of the program committee will act as reviewers for each extended article submitted to this Special Issue.
