26–28 June 2019, at the University of Salford, MediaCityUK Campus, United Kingdom

Our student Melanie Zimmer attended this year’s NLDB2019 conference held at the University of Salford. The conference was first established in 1995 and gives the community interested in applications of Natural Language in the field of Information Systems a platform to come together. The conference covered topics such as information search and topic extraction, classification and sentiment analysis across the various fields of medicine, e-commerce, and social media. In addition to the presentation of the accepted papers, two talks of invited speakers were given: Robert Stevens from the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester shared his experience in bio-ontologies, and Vijayan Sugumaran from the Department of Decision and Information Sciences at Oakland University talked about detecting different states of emergency events using Web resources to help social groups and first responders handle these events effectively.
