Call for Papers
The 9th conference on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language (AINL 2020) invites everyone interested in intellectual technologies, both from academic institutes and innovative companies. The conference aimed to bring together experts in the areas of text mining, speech technologies, dialogue systems, information retrieval, machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics; to create a platform for sharing experience, extending contacts and searching for possible collaboration.


We invite the submission of papers that present original previously unpublished research. We accept full papers (12+ pages) and short papers (6–8 pages) formatted accordingly to the Springer LNCS style. Although Springer offers both LaTeX style files and Word templates, we highly encourage the authors to use LaTeX, especially for texts containing several formulæ. The papers must be written in English.

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed. All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. We use a double-blind review scheme. Please anonymize your papers when submitting for initial review.

At least one author of accepted long and short papers must register for the conference and present the paper.

The authors should use the EasyChair system to submit their papers:

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer CCIS series indexed by Scopus and Web of Science.


This year we will organize "poster without poster" online session. The session will consist of short presentations or demos and then a discussion of the presented work in small groups. The groups will be initially proposed by the conference organizers, so that the people within the group would work on close topics. This is a nice opportunity to meet colleagues and discuss your ongoing research. Presenting already published work is also welcome.
To participate, fill in a form provided under the link below. The form will require a short abstract of your talk. Abstracts will be reviewed by organizing committee.


We organize a number of industrial talks and interactive demonstration. To participate, fill in a form provided under the link below. The submissions will be evaluated by organizing committee.
