Challenges for Natural Language Processing


Belgrade, Serbia, 8–11 September, 2024

This Thematic Track is dedicated to natural language processing systems that address challenging, non-obvious problems with the goal of advancing human language technologies. Special attention is given to tools that approach multilingual tasks, utilize cross-lingual learning and process natural languages that are not widely represented in other events. An integral part of this session is a series of competitions aimed at evaluating natural language processing systems under controlled conditions.
